	a)	Change the character set to either UTF-8 or UTF-16.
	b)	Add a line to the head section indicating that fact.
	c)	Use SED or PERL to change all the docbook character
			entitites to UTF-8 or UTF-16 character entities.
	d)	Trust that your visitors are using browsers that understand
			XML, XHTML and CSS.

	That only works with HTML.  I can't help with the pdf stuff.





	If this email is sent to a list hosted at Topica.Com
	I will not see _any_ replies, as Topica.Com is listed
	in SPEWS for their persistent spamming, and stated
	intenetion of never requiring confirmed opt-in on the
	lists that they do host.

	Topica.Com obviously does not care that  35% of the
	internet is now permanently closed to them.
