Hi Ralph,

When I go to [1] http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-ucr/ firefox hangs (firefox on Windows XP).

I narrowed the problem down to the use of a specific UTF-8 character (I think it's a short dash character). The presence of this characters in an HTML document causes firefox to hang on my system. I've attached an XHTML file containing one of these characters as the content of the <body> element. I've also attached a UTF-8 text file which should contain the offending character.

This character is found at the following locations in [1]:

line 1036 char 48
line 1037 char 36
line 1038 char 32
line 1039 char 32
line 1040 char 35

I suggest replacing these by normal dash characters as used throughout the rest of the document.
