           Summary: Missing Named Character References

          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified

          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
           Version: HEAD
         Component: HTML5
           Product: Validator

Per Bug 17418, Comments 3 & 4

http://hg.mozilla.org/projects/htmlparser/raw-file/default/src/nu/validator/htmlparser/impl/NamedCharacters.java
does not contain the complete list of named character references in HTML5 per
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html

"dollar" and "minus" are two named character references that are definitely
missing. Other named character references may be missing as well. Either the
two lists need to be compared and NamedCharacters.java should be updated to
reflect HTML5 standards or a separate HTML5 NamedCharacters file needs to be
created for the validator to use with HTML5 documents.
