have to be careful to do correct conversion to and from UTF-8 when
passing strring parameters to it. I used wxString for this because it has
useful encoding conversion functions.

So I am guessing it is impossible to reliably encode non-UTF-8 in XML -
using this library anyway? Can you confirm that's the case? If so,
things like saving a text story as XML would be inherently lossy. Fine
if so, but we should know.
