Isn't best to use XML entities to display czech characters?

Given the full text, it sounds a bit consistent, but there is probably
a better way to explain that and I haven't come up with one yet.

Err, what has backward compatibility to do with emulations ? I think that
comment is there because the next <para> misses some emulations like
Darwin, OSF1, Linux, Irix, etc.
