My apologies---I was running on habit.

My original post indicated, "A common use nowadays, especially with 
wikis and newsfeeds, is to store XHTML fragments (such as 'this is 
<em>really</em> cool') to be later integrated into a larger XHTML 
document." By "store" I mean "store in some external file". By 
"integrated" I mean "gathered together and combined".

I never indicated that the application would parse the fragments 
(although in my particular application this occurs)---even if no parsing 
takes places and simply inclusion is to occur, the application still 
needs to know whether it should render characters such as '<' verbatim 
or whether it should encode them.
