( For convenience, the XHTML test file as data URI:
<http://tinyurl.com/6gmedfy> )

* Edited the Summary:
  1) Moved 
      to the URL field
  2) Deleted http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/sgml/entities.html
  3) Added this, that shouldn't be too far from reporterer's intentions: 
      "Named references: Point out HTML5's deviations from HTML4"

   Motivation: To avoid that authors and implementors assume that HTML5's named
character references is a strict superset of HTML5, the deviatons from HTML4
should be pointed out via footnote or other text.

    PS: Supposedly, this deviation from HTML4/XHTML1 is defendable *only*
because the old  character is not too different from the new character
