I also have Firefox 3.0.10, running under Windows XP, but no problems. I
also have no problems with my Opera.
However, Internet Explorer does refuse to render the &isin;. Same thing
in BLD:

Also the OWL semantics recommendation:

Since we are using proper HTML entities I think we can just say it is a
problem of the clients that do not render the page properly.
