my experience with (third party) xml files is that esp spacing and dashes can be
confusing (it may be related to what editors insert: endash emdash figuredash
dash ...)

In principle we could normalize them, but best is to standardise usage somehow.

The same applies to the fo itself, it matters where one sets fonts (esp
bodyfont) and such and what constructs are used; So when the resulting pdf is
disappointing, let me know and we need to find out what the best way is to deal
with it.
