> I actually use internal subsets, very occasionally, and then usually make sure that those characters won't be visible if some UA erroneously renders them. Most often by covering with some element's box using CSS. Thanks, Leif, for your clever solution at http://www.målform.no/html4-or-html5/take2_workaround which looks both cleaner and more universal. Have you got an explanation handy? As SGML I understand it but not how mainstream browsers parse it.

I suppose the important question is, why do you use an internal
subset, even occasionally?  They have never had any effect on any
browser.
