validator.nu finds an error in 

  http://www.ltg.ed.ac.uk/~ht/char_alias.html

I don't think I have a problem with that, I can imagine an argument
that it's broken (although http://www.ltg.ed.ac.uk/~ht/char_alias.xml
is _not_ broken per the XML specification. . .), but I can't find
anywhere in the HTML5 spec. which says so.  Does it/should it?
