Pod::SAX is missing support for numerous entities in the HTML 4.0 standard. In fact, comparing the list of entities supported in Pod::SAX with [0], it appears that Pod::SAX is only listing HTML 2.0 entities. Since the last release of Pod::SAX was in 2003, five years after the release of the HTML 4.0 standard, and the perlpod manpage says nothing about which version of HTML the list of entities is to come from, it seems reasonable to think that Pod::SAX should support all of the standard HTML 4.0 entities. With appropriate fixes for 83866 and 83867, the attached pod file should produce a set of 254 listitems with five instances of the same character on each line. The set of characters was produced by parsing the .ent files in /usr/share/xml/entities/xhtml/ in the Debian w3c-dtd- xhtml package using (what else?) a perl one-liner. [0] ences
