They are not correct, and the validator sticks in a big "Explain"  
link[1] to <http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html#bad-entity> which  
tells you why they are not correct and how to fix them.

This issue has been brought up many times in the page[2], please check  
the archives before posting in future.

Thank-you
