    In this case, the solution is *already* out there, if you just accept to
    adhere to standards (such as Unicode, Java, *XML*, and Plane-14 tags

    You can throw away my silly toy parsers, and upload on your DVB-MHP a
    *full-fledged* XML browser written in *Java*, such as this one, designed
    exactly for the kind of embedded usage that you described:


    When the browser is there, just feed it with whatever kind XML file you
    need. You don't even have to decide in advance the file format and encoding:
    among other things, X-Smiles understand XSL Formatting Objects (which is
    kind of style sheets even smarter of the Cascading Style Sheets that I used
    in my example), so you just specify these details directly in the text file.
