Hallo Henri,

&apos; &quot; &gt; &lt; and &amp; are the only html-entities that can be
recognised by xml. All the other must be coded as &#32; for &nbsp;

When xhtml is served as application/xhtml+xml, opera 6/7 has  the
existing xml-entity-problems, but recognises &quot; as that is also  a
xml-entity.

I have a german page served as application/xhtml+xml and this is
correctly displayed in opera6/7 with still &quot; in the code. It is not
a xhtml, but a general xml problem. Also rdf has this same problem,
being also xml. Windows 95 and 98 can not interpret unicode correctly,
so this probably gives problems too.

greetings
Ineke van der Maat
