The only thing new about this with XHTML is that a semicolon is required
even if the entity reference is followed by whitespace. "&amp blah" was
allowed in HTML4.0 and earlier but "&ampblah" was not. However it has long
(always?) been recommended to use the semicolon in any case since it was
never wrong to do so, and hence a good habit to get into.
