What are you citing? I have:

Hypertext Markup Language - 2.0 - Proposed Entities
Sat Jun 3 20:37:34 1995
|<!ENTITY shy CDATA "&#173" -- soft hyphen -->

Hmmm... why isn't nbsp in there? And why is yuml there in stead
of the standard entity set? yuml is my fault... but Chris: why
isn't nbsp in the proposed section... was it in your proposal?

EVERYBODY: with documents in revision, it's critical to cite dates
and titles, if not URLs etc.
