I am not really very happy about tinkering so 
soon after registration. But if we do change it I 
would like to get rid of the illegible &xxxx; 
notation. If the registry entries are to be in 
HTML, they should be so normatively, with charset 
tagging so that they display properly. If they 
are not tagged, then ASCII fallback should be 
used so the strings are legible. As it is I can 
only guess, or drag out the Unicode book and look 
them up. That's not legibility.
