I've heard different opinions on the matter. What I think the best thing
to do is to change the character encoding to UTF-8; stop encoding the
entities and have UTF-8 characters instead. However, I suspect this may
cause more problems for people than it causes.

One interesting thing I heard today: apparently IE can sometimes
auto-add a file to your Favourites if it's XML and the root tag is
<channel>. Specifying my own namespace may prevent that, but I'll not
have time to look into that too closely yet. After all, I've still not
finished the user-facing parts of the site!
