I don't think this is called for. Support for Unicode, and other
character sets and encodings is an absolute necessity. This issue will
not be "put to bed" until support is in the WWW.

There is a mailing list devoted to getting SGML into the WWW (or more
specifically, in defining a MIME type for SGML). If one does not
require strict validation, parsing SGML should be little more trouble
than parsing HTML. If one further restricted oneself to the
TEI-subset, it would be almost trivial.
