I've just been looking at a lengthy example René sent me off-list.   
The result of processing it with LaTeX was remarkably good PDF (apart  
from one widow and one overlong line containing a URL), and running  
htlatex on it without any special parameters produced a perfect HTML  
document (valid HTML 4.01 Transitional and valid CSS, according to  
the W3C validator service).  I don't really see what René would gain  
by using XeTeX to produce the PDF version, unless he doesn't like the  
look of the Times and Helvetica fonts he's currently using.

(I feel like an absolute traitor saying this on this list... ;-)
