Thanks for the heads up.  Yes, I'm aware that I have to deal with
encoding and escaping issues of XML.  In fact, I have done alot of
reading and research this past week, including reading your excellent
articles on XML. I plan to revisit your articles when I reach this

Just a small background:  Our product is an intranet RPC based
client/server system called WINSERVER.  So we have to deal encoding
and escaping issues as it is now for the web interface services.

Do I have all the functionality covered? Don't know yet.  There are some
conflicting concepts and in our case some overlapping concepts that I
have to work out first.
