Title: Using character entities and NCRs


Please add the following:
1. Some web browsers send HTML form results using NCRs.
2. When converting XML or HTML files (or form results) to Unicode: First
convert the text from its encoding to Unicode, then handle any markup,
then un-escape NCRs and character entities.
3. Please list all of the character entities predefined by the XML
Recommendation itself - it includes gt/lt/amp, does it include quot/apos
and/or anything else?
4. Please list the code points in XML 1.0 and 1.1 that _must_ be
represented with NCRs or entities, like C0 controls or just NUL.
5. Please make a stronger recommendation for using UTF-8.
