| How can one represent the various characters used in pronunciation
| using XML?
Just like you would represent any other character. They are Unicode
characters like any others, and so subject to the same rules as all
other characters, though of course there are some special
considerations since it may be difficult for you to type them
1) Use an IPA keyboard layout and a properly Unicode-aware editor and
just type them in. Have the editor store your document as UTF-8 or
UTF-16, and all will be well.
2) Find the number of the character(s) you want, and encode them
according to the rules of UTF-8/16. With some programming
languages this really easy, while with others it can require a bit
3) Find the number of the character(s) you want, and encode them with
character references (A or A).

| Any suggestions?
What's the difference between 'o' and 'oo'? Knowing that would help. :)
