I've never posted to this type of forum before, and I hope I am doing
so in the correct light, and at an appropriate time.

This comment is purely from a real world developer that hopes to move
toward using XHTML as
an output method but will be kept from getting to this point buy the
following comment

Implementations may define additional serialization parameters....
.....but they could not instruct the serializer to suppress the error
that occurs when the
html output method encounters illegal characters (see error SERE014).

In the real world I will see the message.
SERE0014: Illegal HTML character: decimal 149(as well as others)

<xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>
if i change to
<xsl:output method="xhtml" indent="yes"/>

it will fix my problem, however, It will cause other many problems
with IE (the browser)
and css that I cant resolve currently.

While I understand the goal (I think) of this spec, not allowing
workarounds will eliminate a real world solution from a real world
problem,  and is a bit draconian and not very pragmatic.

Thank you for all your hard work on this spec.
