--- Comment #4 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
um, after looking more carefully at the NAMES array in the NamedCharacters.java
source, I see now that I was misunderstanding it. I see that the items in the
array are not exact matches for named character references but instead are all
missing the first two characters of the name. And I see "llar;" and "nus;" in
there, as expected.

And anyway in the mean time I actually got around to taking the time to
actually test with the validator and found that the "&dollar;" and "&minus;"
work as expected. So there's no bug here after all. The test file posted to bug
17418 appears to be testing whether semicolon-less "&dollar" and "&minus" work.
But that test doesn't conform to the spec. The named-character-references table
only allows "&dollar;" and "&minus;" (with the semicolon), not "&dollar" and
"&minus" (without the semicolon).

So I'm moving this bug to resolved.
