Numeric character entities give the code position in the document 
character set. If the document is using Windows Code Page, then it is 
correct for the &#xNNN; references to be referring to Windows CP character 
numbers and not Unicode ones. See section 5.3.1 of the HTML 4.01 
Specification.

If you are observing a browser interpreting entities in a way not 
consistent with this, it is the browser at fault. Amaya's behaviour 
appears to be correct.
