Perhaps all popular browsers are interpreting RE incorrectly, but not
all browsers.  SGML based browsers would not treat the REs in your
example as significant.

I suspect the broken browsers would also handle the following improperly:

<pre>
This text, including &eacute
, should display as one line.
</pre>

Entity references may be terminated by refc or RE, in which case RE is
to be suppressed.
