I recently used the combined entities at
http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/2007/w3centities-f.ent as an inline DTD in
MS SQL Server (this automatically resolves entities to their character
codes) and noticed a couple of issues:

1. <!ENTITY amp "&#38;#38;" ><!--AMPERSAND -->
The value should be "&#x00026;"

2. <!ENTITY lt "&#38;#60;" ><!--LESS-THAN SIGN -->
The value should be "&#x0003C;"

The values above were tested and produced the correct characters when
rendered in a browser as HTML. The uppercase variants of these entities
also contain incorrect values.

3. <!ENTITY nvlt "&#38;#x0003C;&#x020D2;" ><!--LESS-THAN SIGN with vertical
line -->
AFAIK, the value should be "&#x0003C;&#x020D2;" but I just noticed this one
and haven't tested.
