Given that we really do want a multilingual WWW, and that we do want
HTML to be a conforming application of SGML, and that we want to
acknowledge that yes, there is data in things other than ISO8859-1, we
have this little problem of the SGML declaration.

I have stated time and again that ERCS (Unicode) is the best answer,
and as yet, we have no resolution. We also have no alternative
proposal as yet.

If someone has a better idea, let's here it. If not, let's call the
matter closed, and use ERCS.
