Oops on my part, it looks like it is not just that test, but many of the 
tests have entities in the wrong place.

The pattern seems to be that something like "this" will be turned into
&quot;this" with the first quote escaped and the second left as-is. This
would be fine, except when it occurs within a CDATA section and messes up
the CSS.

The following tests appear to be affected:

t0402-c71-fwd-parsing-00-f
t0402-c71-fwd-parsing-02-f

Many other tests have single escaped entities for no obvious reason, but 
since it is in the XML content it does not cause problems.

Cheers,

Michael
