And at least two more issues:

There is an entity for questions@, &a.questions;.  But creating that 
address without using the entity is wrong, and gives a bad example.

Also, that entity shows the email address as questions at, not 
freebsd-questions at  Check out the bottom of each HTML 
Handbook page.

Given all that, I'm going to remove the questions@ address and use 
notreal at, unless someone can suggest something better.
