You might note that nsgmls must be compiled with an SGML declaration
allowing for i18n, which I don't believe is its default. You can pull the
i18n-ized declaration off of the i18n draft and recompile nsgmls.

I had the same problem when I first ran nsgmls -- the version I had
couldn't handle character references in the 8000 range until
internationalization. As you mentioned, now it works fine.
