FYI The U.S./English version of Internet Explorer 5.5 correctly
renders all three of the trademark symbols given in Tim's message.
Netscape 4.7x only renders <&#8482;> correctly as a superscript "TM";
it displays the other two literally even when the character set is
changed from Western ISO-8859-1 to UTF-7 or -8, at least on my
computer.
