The code is mostly 'inherited' from Mathew, and all strings are
escaped in that model.[1]  Basically, you move to the LOM
representation as soon as possible, manipulate that tree, and _then_
write it out as a nice XML string.  I've also explored a few ideas
like template-based structural matching on LOM trees.  (There is a
manual ;))

[1] except in Orbiter, I had a means to escape from escaping, because
of the unholy relationship between JavaScript and HTML (not XHTML!)
