Have you tried  making *valid* XHTML from TEI texts? I have invested
much effort in my XSL recently working around the madness of XHTML, and
its got me pulling my hair (such as it is) out. Recently I found, for
instance, that you cannot embed a <pre> section in a paragraph
(or a list, or a quote, or a table, etc etc). Sigh.
