It sounds like a good option, I didn't know this service, it seems to work
very well. I'm not sure if using HTML entities would be a good idea though,
because we'd still may run into encoding issues for the generated text
version.

So I'm +1 to move to a RELEASE_NOTES.html file in svn, and generate the text
version at release time.
I'm -0 to use HTML entities for international characters in this file.

What do others think?
