I think the license says that it may be freely used to make derived
works that implement what it describes (the entities). But my brains
does become a bit fuzzy when reading this copyright statement.

Does anybody think this is not free and/or GPL compatible?
If anybody objects then maybe we can use the ones from the XHTML spec?
But the simplest solution might be to just clean the original HTML from
those entities when transforming to XML. I believe there are only about
200 valid/used symbols anyway.

I don't know. We might have to ask the gnu webmasters
(address@hidden). Should there be an actual dtd at that address?
Speaking of which. Since we still don't have a dtd can we also use the
--novalid flag for xsltproc so we won't get the warning messages about
