Sure. I've used the &trade; at:
http://www.laughing-coyote.com/ko/luc/photos.htm. It displays correctly no
matter if I use the &trade; or &#8482; in IE 6, Netscape 6, Netscape 7,
Opera 6, and Mozilla 1.0 on my Windows box, so I'm not too concerned right
now about how it displays, I just want my pages to validate and to make sure
I can use the Character Entity reference for my pages.

Thanks again,
Derek
