I mentioned this in early sept on www-html.  I don't know if it counts as
an error in HTML 4.01.  It is more like an ommission

<!ENTITY Zcaron  CDATA "&#381;"  -- latin capital letter Z with caron,
                                    U+017D ISOlat2 -->
<!ENTITY zcaron  CDATA "&#382;"  -- latin small letter z with caron,
                                    U+017E ISOlat2 -->

should be added to -//W3C//ENTITIES Special//EN//HTML
So that all CP1252 characters have named entities
