  Cool!  Do you mind if I provide a link to this from the XBEL pages
on python.org?

  This I don't understand; what's missing that needs to be added to
the DTD?  This is XML, so the character set is Unicode.
  Now, if it's the *tools* that don't support a wide range of
encodings, that I do understand.  I think this will be fixed when
Python provides direct support for Unicode in the core.  I'll fix them=20=

myself if I have to!
