    Thanks. But I think that
    is, if not truly ambiguous, badly written. 5.3 deprecates but
    allows the use of SGML character references in HTML, thereby
    allowing numeric character references without the final semi-colon,
    but 5.3.1 goes on to define numeric character references in such a way
    as to require the final semi-colon. It is less than obvious that 5.3.1
    is intended to define only "true HTML" numeric character
    references and to be inapplicable to the SGML character references that
    are also permitted.
