That is what I meant by character entity. I should have said character
reference. Converting the general entity references to character references
is what I was trying to ask about. I.e. is it reasonable for a html->xhtml
converter to do this automagically  or should it be an option, etc..

A further question would be when Tidy would start doing it :-?
