Hello again,

More careful reading :) resulted in a few comments on XHTML Entity Files (minor typos):

1. [1] Line 231: <!ENTITY thorn  "&#254;" ><!-- latin small letter thorn with,
   Note that the letter doesn't have any special additions, you may
   want to remove the word "with".
2. [2] Line 191: <!-- note that nsup, 'not a superset of, U+2283' is not covered by the Symbol
   U+2283 is incorrectly included into the suggested name (it is
   quoted) which may (in theory) lead to misunderstanding.
3. [2] Line  91: <!ENTITY thetasym "&#977;" ><!-- greek small letter theta symbol,
   The Unicode says thetasym is "GREEK THETA SYMBOL = GREEK SMALL
   LETTER SCRIPT THETA". I doubt if there's a big difference but
   anyway.
4. [2] Line 161: <!ENTITY sum      "&#8721;" ><!-- n-ary sumation, U+2211 ISOamsb -->
   Misspelled the word "summation".
5. [2] Line 200: <!ENTITY otimes   "&#8855;" ><!-- circled times = vector product,
   Compare to the Unicode's "CIRCLED TIMES = tensor product = vector
   pointing into page". I must confess I don't quite understand if
   there's a difference between "vector product" and "tensor product",
   that's why I kindly ask you to tell me which term is the right one.
6. [2] Line 149: <!ENTITY empty    "&#8709;" ><!-- empty set = null set = diameter,
   The Unicode standard says that the three characters:
   U+2205 (Empty set), U+0028 (Latin capital letter o with stoke),
   U+2300 (diameter sign) are all different. You treat it the other way.

Links: [1] http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml-lat1.ent (also found
           in XHTML Basic zip/gzip archives, in XHTMLMod rec and
           perhaps in other XHTML-related specs).
       [2] http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml-symbol.ent (also
           found in XHTML Basic zip/gzip archives, in XHTMLMod rec and
           perhaps in other XHTML-related specs).

Please let me know whether I need to include the above-mentioned into
my translation of XHTML Basic or not.

Best wishes.
