Firefox fails on only within the href attribute.  All the characters in 
the last 2 columns contain links using their respective entity 
references both with and without the REFC.

Take &fnof; for example.  The resultant links point to:
   with REFC: http://example.org/?test%C6%92=0
   without:   http://example.org/?test&fnof=1

Both should be identical (except for the number on the end).

But, with &iexcl; (from ISO-8859-1), the results are:
   with REFC: http://example.org/?test%C2%A1=0
   without:   http://example.org/?test%C2%A1=1
