It was a joke.  As I said before, I wouldn't add all those entities to
MicroXML, because it would break backward compatibility.

I just thought of a way of doing it, though: allow an extension to
the DOCTYPE that specifies the home on the W3C page of the entities.
Of course, MicroXML parsers won't actually load that; it'll just make
them switch on the entities.

philologists, psychologists, biologists and neurologists, along with
whatever blood can be got out of grammarians. - Russ Rymer
