I noticed some problems in the entities files provided on
<http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/MarkUp/Cougar/dtd.html>

In HTMLmisc.ent:
<!ENTITY copy   CDATA "&#169"   -- copyright sign        -->
<!ENTITY reg    CDATA "&#174"   -- registered sign       -->
are missing ;, should be
<!ENTITY copy   CDATA "&#169;"   -- copyright sign        -->
<!ENTITY reg    CDATA "&#174;"   -- registered sign       -->

but copy, reg, shy, and nbsp are already in ISOlat1.ent.

I also see that quot is here, although it was not in HTML3.2 though it
was in HTML2.0.  Should it have been in 3.2, or should it not be in Cougar?

In HTMLsym.ent:
<!ENTITY sim      CDATA "&#;" -- tilde operator, =varies with, =similar to, U223C -->
should be
<!ENTITY sim      CDATA "&#8764;" -- tilde operator, =varies with, =similar to, U223C -->

Also, perp is declared twice.

Thanks,
Craig
