Subject: incorrect handling of E<..> entities in View::HTML
view_seq_entity() in View::HTML just emits the entity from the POD. This is incorrect, because E<0xEF> is legal POD, while &#0xEF; is not legal HTML. So here is a proposal to improve that function (code stolen from Pod::HTML). sub view_seq_entity { my ($self, $entity) = @_; $entity =~ s/^0?x([\dA-F]+)$/#x$1/i # stolen from Pod::Html or $entity =~ s/^0([0-7]+)$/'#'.oct($1)/ei or $entity =~ s/^(\d+)$/#$1/; return "&$entity;" }
