Comment (by ross at soi.city.ac.uk):

 We're constrained by the behaviour of Text.XHtml here.  I've added a meta
 tag to declare the charset that it's using, but it might be safer for
 Text.XHtml to escape everything over 127.  Alternatively, if we were to
 serve UTF-8, the cgi package would be the appropriate place to do that.
