Hi,

it seems to me that an XML parser may reject a document
containing the form feed character. So, probably it would be
better to avoid such references in XHTML.

In XHTML 1.0, section 3.2:
--------------------------

"  9. The XHTML user agent in addition, must treat the following
characters
"     as whitespace:
"     o Form feed(&#x000C)


In XML 1.0, section 4.1:
------------------------
"   WFC:Legal Character:
"   Characters referred to using character references must match the
"   production for 'Char'.

and in section 2.2, rule 2:
---------------------------
[2] Char ::= #x9 | #xA | #xD | [#x20-#xD7FF]
            | [#xE000-#xFFFD]
            | [#x10000-#x10FFFF]
