Hello, again.

The character data may consist of ASCII characters and MathML entities.
And these are not my words
(check MATML/REC-MathML/chapter2.html#sec2.3).
But using entity names from ISOCYR1 is just like crazy.
One page of ordinary Russian text will be 20K or more?
I still don't know what to do.
