> The HTML specification disallows certain code points from appearing in HTML files (XML
has essentially the same list, minus the high ISO characters) as specified in
 The Trinidad HtmlEscapes utilities allow the low control characters and the high characters
that are technically outside of Unicode to be output.  This causes problems if the content
is validated.
> The fix is to use numeric character references such as &#1; rather than outputting
code point 1 directly.  In addition, Internet Explorer has a bug where &#0; is output
as "&#0;" so it is preferable to suppress this character rather then outputting it.
