You use "text" output to output characters that don't have to be xml - that
is, well-formed - and don't have to be html either.  For example, you can
get a real "<" or "&" in the output.

With "html" output you can get non-wellformed output as long as it's still
html.  For example, <br/> in the source transforms into <br> in the output.
