It also doesn't recognize &eumlaut; and mistakenly treats <BR>
the same as <P> inside unordered lists.
I recommend against using MacMosaic as a reference implementation -- it's
a great application, but I wouldn't use it as a reference.

This, I think, is the difference between free software which includes
source code and that which doesn't -- these bugs would have been fixed
within days of an XMosaic release, because a thousand different programmers
would ferret out the bugs and at least one would publish a relevant patch.
