At 07:26a +0000 03/17/2004, David Woolley didst inscribe upon an electronic papyrus:

 > © or & or ... -- you know, entities.

These require a DTD.  If the document is anything except HTML or an SGML
or XML language, they have no meaning except for the literal sequence
of characters.  If they are XML only four values are defined, without
the browser knowing or parsing the DTD.  There is one school of thought
that says that, as browsers are not generally validating parsers, that
only those four may be safely used in XHTML.

Are you saying that the reason Lynx isn't decoding them is not because the page was gzipped, but rather because the page is XHTML?

 glad that ™ wasn't decoded, as that's not even valid HTML ;)
