Hi Ian.

One of the rules in pubrules is that the copyright information must
use very particular markup.  I was wondering if this could be relaxed in
two ways.

First, it would be good if I could use the “©” and “™” characters
directly, instead of being forced to use the entities.

Second, I would like my document to be valid HTML 5 as well as valid
XHTML 1.0, and to that end I would like to be able to use <abbr> instead
of <acronym> in that boilerplate, since <acronym> is not in HTML 5 (and
since MIT is not strictly an acronym anyway).
