In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of 2002-01-05 on couchpotato
configured using `configure  --disable-largefile'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: de_DE
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Sorry, the "C-c 8" (sgml-name-8bit-mode) feature which worked fine
with Emacs 20 does not work with Emacs 21 at all.
If sgml-name-8bit-mode is on, then you should be able to type i.e. 'ö' and
it will insert "ö".

the "umlaute" (i.e. 'ö') are bound to self-insert-command, and they
should be bound to sgml-maybe-name-self (this function decides whether
to insert the character or the html entity based on

I guess that this statement (in sgml-mode.el) is the problem:

    (define-key map (vector (make-char 'latin-iso8859-1))

As a test-case just open a html document (make sure that sgml-mode.el
is used and not psgmld oder html-helper-mode), enter
sgml-name-8bit-mode (C-c 8) and enter i.e. '§', which should
insert "§".
