Thanks Ian,

However, Bert's comment may yet turn out useful, since I seem to
remember that Netscape? couldn't handle hex NCRs until recently - not
sure of my facts, but I'll check it out.  We've chosen fairly recent
('standards compliant') versions of browsers as our base - to encourage
bon usage, but we have mechanisms for pointing out these kinds of
discrepancies.
