Given the BrowseX architecture, it does about all it
can with most HTML 4 SGML Character entities,
However, there are a few entities that would make more
sense to render in ways that BrowseX can handle. See
I think documents that use these could be made more
readable if some of the entities were replaced with
sensible iso-8859-1 glyphs.
ensp single space " "
emsp single space (or two spaces?) " "
thinsp single space " "
zwnj not sure what to do about these...no
character at all?
lrm these are escapes, and shouldn't be displayed
ndash hyphen "-"
mdash hyphen (or two hyphens?) "--"
lsquo single quote "'"
rsquo backtick '`'
sbquo single quote? "'"
ldquo double quote
rdquo double quote
bdquo double quote?
sum plus "+"
minus hyphen "-"
frasl slash "/"
lsaquo less-than "<"
rsaquo greater-than ">"
