       mtext_serialize - Serialize text properties in an M-text.


       MText* mtext_serialize (MText * mt, int from, int to, MPlist * property_list)


       Serialize text properties in an M-text. The mtext_serialize() function serializes the text
       between from and to in M-text mt.  The serialized result is an M-text in a form of XML.
       property_list limits the text properties to be serialized. Only those text properties
       whose key

       · appears as the value of an element in property_list, and
       · has the symbol property Mtext_prop_serializer
       are serialized as a 'property' element in the resulting XML representation.
       The DTD of the generated XML is as follows:
       <!DOCTYPE mtext [
         <!ELEMENT mtext (property*,body+)>
         <!ELEMENT property EMPTY>
         <!ELEMENT body (#PCDATA)>
         <!ATTLIST property key CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ATTLIST property value CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ATTLIST property from CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ATTLIST property to CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ATTLIST property control CDATA #REQUIRED>
       This function depends on the libxml2 library. If the m17n library is configured without
       libxml2, this function always fails.


           If the operation was successful, mtext_serialize() returns an M-text in the form of
           XML. Otherwise it returns NULL and assigns an error code to the external variable
