Re: Decision: C.4 (Predefined entities)
A few of the entity names are rendered on the Netscape 3.0 and MS Internet

characters are retained.
In both browsers at least one substitution is for a wrong character:
∉ is recognized by both browsers as ¬ and either "in;" or "in"
is retained after that substitution for the not, a known entity in ISO Latin 1.
