We are working with STM-type articles with a scattering of 'special' characters, rather than a complete swathe of a single, intractable, character set. For this, character-level XSLT processing seems a natural choice. Yes, it is slow, but at present we only plan to use the technique for off-line pre-conversion to static HTML. Richard.
