Thanks, Oliver!

It occurred to me that the portion of the input in which Mr.
Härnhammar's name occurred was XHTML, where a wide variety of entities
are defined (including the one you used).  Also, the VuXML DTD pulls in
these entities as part of XHTML modularization.  Nonetheless, this is
sort of a `coincidence' :-)   The document itself is *not* XHTML and I
prefer to avoid entities that are not pre-defined, so that processing
tools do not have to know about XHTML entities, just XML and UTF-8.

A numeric character reference would have also been OK, although I
personally prefer to see the actual character.  I will probably
occassionally review and convert any character references into their
UTF-8 equivalents, but contributors should feel free to use them when
necessary (i.e. no UTF-8 environment).
