Wrong. This misconception is probably a good enough reason to include
something about this, even at the risk of confusing some people who
weren't confused before the explanation.

In HTML, &copy=1 means the copyright sign followed by the equals sign and
digit 1, as I wrote. This is also how most browsers treat it.

In XHTML, &copy=1 is simply not allowed (the document isn't even
well-formed XML, i.e. not XML at all).
