Hi,

If you have an HTML document containing HTML-specific entity references probably a web browser knows how to expand and display those.
But a plain XML processor will know how to expand only 4 named entities: <, > &amp, " and '
And of course any XML processor also knows how to expand character entities (encoded either in hexadecimal or decimal format).

Regards,
Radu
