Henri, As this bug notes, the named character references &dollar; and &minus;
are reported as errors by the HTML parser. From inspection of the
NamedCharacters.java source in the parser source I see that in fact those are
not in that file at all. I guess it's possible that some other named references
currently allowed by the spec are not yet in the NamedCharacters.java source.
Maybe either Hixie added more   named references a while back, or the Math WG
did to the upstream source.

Anyway, I also notice that the parser source is missing the ones that were
added in spec r5557 http://html5.org/r/5557

I'm happy to write up a patch for this but I assume you're generating the
NamedCharacters.java source, and I could not find the code for making it in the
parser repo. Maybe it would be good if the repo also had whatever code you're
using to generate that file?
