I am using an old version of the W3C lib for parsing HTML files, and
I have discovered that the SGML parser is unable to handle entities that
are not terminated with ';'.

For example:

	d&eacute;ja	->	déja

	d&eacuteja	->	d&eacuteja

Unfortunately, most of the HTML source I am using is written for Netsape,
and the entities are not terminated with ';'.

Is there a new version of the W3C HTML parser that bypasses this
limitation, or does somebody modifiy the parser sources for that ?

Thanks in advance !
