A discovered a bug in the HTML parser implementation. According to RFC
1866 (HTML 2.0) ``The terminating semicolon on entity or numeric character
references is only necessary when the character following the reference
would otherwise recognised as part of the name...''.

In the libwww 4.0D the HTML parser only recognises ``&aacute;'' and 
doesn't recognises ``&aacute''.
Is that the case in the next release too?
