Tested with the attached test case. The error never showed up where it
shouldn't. Tested it on other sites as well. Looks like the patch is working.

Based on http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html, an error
should have shown up for "&dollar" and "&minus", but the live validator
(http://validator.w3.org) does not recognize them as named character
references, so I imagine that is a separate bug.
