Comment:
Named character set references
(http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html) in these draft
contains whole character set of html 4 specification
(http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/sgml/entities.html). We can say that html 4
character set references is subset of html 5 character references. But
following case breaks this rule.

In html 4 &rang; and &lang is declared as below,
<!ENTITY lang      CDATA "&#9001;" -- left-pointing angle bracket = bra,
                     U+2329 ISOtech -->
<!-- lang is NOT the same character as U+003C 'less than' 
     or U+2039 'single left-pointing angle quotation mark' -->
<!ENTITY rang      CDATA "&#9002;" -- right-pointing angle bracket = ket,
                     U+232A ISOtech -->

Contrary html 5 defines this characters as below,
rang;    U+027E9
lang;    U+027E8 

Except these two named references rest is same both in html 4 and html 5.
