Since both Peter Flynn and Liam Quin, two of the best informed individuals
about HTML and SGML on this list, say you can't use  for TM and when
I enter into an HTML document and is read by my browser (Netscape 2.0b2) as
TM, what does the *can't* mean?
Shouldn't? -because it is unassigned? Why does it work then?
There is a list of these characters available -
http://www.efn.org/~gjb/asciidec.html - are many of them not allowed?
By the by, I meant standard relationship in size when I said standard size
- I should have been clearer.
