If there is I don't know what it's called. Not being able to read DSSSL
style sheets I could look for a very long time.
The thing that worries me that the whole point of writing in sgml is that I
only have to worry about the content, but here I am ferreting around trying
to getting quotes and tildes displayed. I may fix it on my system but
what about all the other machines out there with the same default set-up
that I had? What's the point of me fixing it to show these entities
correctly if it's going to come out gibberish on other people's machines?
I do understand the default option as you described it but I haven't found a
single combination of format and browser that works the way the default
option is intended for, from text with less to GhostView with ps to *any*
html browser with html.
