Tom Bruce broght up the question of allowing
entities for more than the ISOLatin1 set.
Anyone care to take on defining a reasonable set?
(Like not all unicode?)

We would need

names from some standard,

suggested translations into latin 1 equivalents
for those without them?)

Tom's initial need was for section sign, pilcrow (paragraph mark),
mu and a few other Greek characters in common use outside Greek,
and the registered and copyright signs.

I am usingthe term "HMML" to refer to the next DTD following on from
HTML, to distinguidsh from HTML which I think should stick at latin1
for the sake of stability.
