For what it is worth, it looks like Netscape 4.01 is attempting to
support Unicode.


    NCR (Numeric Character References) and NE (Named Entities) display properly if the character
    in question is available in the chosen encoding. NCR's are interpreted as Unicode code points
    in the decimal format following the standards in RFC 2070. If the corresponding character does
    not exist in the chosen encoding, then "?" will be displayed.
