The UTF-*'s are logically equivalent to most users, in that they share
the property that almost no real-world data objects are encoded in either.
One of the nice things about XML is that it allows you to store & transmit
your objects in any well-known encoding as long as you declare it. I'm
delighted to observe that most of the real-world XML processors out there
effortlessly deal with various ISO-Latins and JIS and so on. -T.
