Re: nested output
It displays fine in my mail program as an en-dash. I don't intend to deal with tex-escaping and such; just utf-8. You had byte 150 which is the UTF8 encoding of unicode character 150 which is a control character (and thus not even allowed in XML 1.1) but allowed in XML1.0 but not really recommended it is START OF GUARDED AREA Are you sure you're not writing out in some microsoft specific encoding? > Do you have any thoughts about the > best design approach to this intermediate (xhtml) representation to > make output transformation to other targets easiest? Without having looked in detail at your problem, I wouldn't use xhtml as an intermediate format. I'd use a custom format designed to exactly express the semantics that you want to express and I'd have back ends that go from there to xhtml or latex or wordxml or whatever. Forcing your intermediate stage to be xhtml and hiding structure in a rather dubious looking class attribute (is it really OK to have space separated tokens in a css class?) just makes your non-xhtml back ends harder. > Incidentally, I'm realizing that XSLT 2.0's unparsed-text() functions > and reg-exp support means that this could theoretically be extended to > handle TeX input documents. If you want to amuse yourself over the holidays you could try to get a regexp that would parse enough of tex to understand this (seasonal) tex (plain tex not latex) document http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/plain/contrib/xii.tex That someone with time on his hands wrote in a former life...
