[second time i send it .. what happened I see nothing on the archive ... ? ]

Hello there,

I get this error :
Line 72, column 32:
.. <p><span class,olor"><b>&#155; </b></span><span class,h ...

Error: reference to non-SGML character

I'm in <?xml version
I looked at the "special characters" page : http://www.w3

It says :
"Any printing character within the 8-bit character encoding of ISO 8859/1
(256 character positions) or the 7-bit character encoding of ISO 646 (128
character positions) may be represented within the text of an HTML document
by a numeric character reference"

I think this is a bug as I tried other numbers and manage to find that
numbers between #126 to #159 doesn't validate, and throw "non-SGML character
 errors. Others numbers before and
after are ok.
