OK, we do clearly have a problem with SGML entities in 3.1.2, as well
as 3.2. (3.2 has some more serious problems, which I was hoping to
tackle, but that's another story.) So, right now, it only translates
&foo; entities outside of any HTML tags. I think there are reasons
not to translate them in all tags, but where is it valid to do so?
Certainly in keywords text, alt text in img tags, and meta description
text. How about htdig-email-subject? Any others I've missed?
