I am glad to see HTML 4.01 supporting WebSGML and Hex NCRs!

There is a little typo in the SGML declaration fragment  in the
appendix.

DELIM
               GENERAL SGMLREF
               HCRO "&#38#x" -- 38 is the number for ampersand --
               SHORTREF SGMLREF

is missing the REFC ";" character: it is best practise to be:

DELIM
               GENERAL SGMLREF
               HCRO "&#38;#x" -- 38 is the number for ampersand --
               SHORTREF SGMLREF

Also, the changes mentioned have not actually been applied to section
20: neither then HCRO or the new FPI to invoke WebSGML.

Cheers.
