Just two small points aboiut Daniel Glazman's message...

Generalised support for SGML Entities is quite a long way away in HTML
browsers, I think. In fact, support for arbitrary nesting of elements
requires work in some of the browsers, let alone many of the more complex
SGML concepts. Heck, <! starts a comment even in the latest Netscape.

HoTMetaL PRO users generally don't see `Local & Active', and I think that
the next version of the freely available HoTMetaL also does away with the
need to see it. Actually, since you can type the entity (e.g. e-grave)
directly at the keyboard, even current HoTMetaL users needn't see it.

If this doesn't work on SunOS, try the dynamically linked binary.
