So I just now ran it on a copy of the named-character-references table in the
current spec, and I got output that is identical to what's currently in the
NamedCharacters.java source. That is, lacking &dollar; and &minus;

So I think there might be a bug in the GenerateNamedCharacters code that's
causing it to drop some items in the table.
