This can be done by changing layout resources, not the code.
Just grep the sources and you'll find many places, where <br> is
hard-coded. Perhaps all of them can be changed with layout resources,
but there is no way to know :)
2) We delete characters that are invalid XML characters.
There is the CHARSETCONVERTERS and TEXTENCODE resources for
controling how characters are converted. With TEXTENCODE, you
can convert everything to UTF-8.
We are converting to utf-8, but that doesn't get rid of invalid XML
characters (which may be valid utf-8 characters).
3) We escape <, > and & with < > &
MHonArc already does this.
We kept getting unknown entity" errors, when there was something like
Mike&Lisa in the mail. Perhaps that escaping is not done in our
configuration (plain text filter).
I'll ask my colleague for details today, he wasn't available yesterday.
