I wanted to be sure that the two entities below get added to HTML 4.01.  My
first message was somewhat terse, and received no response.  Since the
1999-09-22 deadline is almost up, I wanted to mention it again.

I'll add that (AFAIK) these are the only two characters in CP-1252 range
from 128 to 159 that don't have a corresponding entity equivalent. (See
<http://www.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/u/mvcorks/code/charsets/named-entities-images.html>). 
For this reason it is important that entities for them are added.
