In the HTML 4.01 specification on this page,

http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/charset.html#h-5.3.1

describes numeric character references which are perfectly legal,
however when validating with such numeric character reference, I
recieve an error:

 * Line 106, column 5:

    &#151;foo bar<br>
         ^

Error: reference to non-SGML character

Thanks,
-Brian
