1.  nsgmls is not an XML parser.  those errors are probably because it's
    not recognizing &#X2014; (the hex version) as a numeric character
    reference.  You might try converting X2014 to a decimal number
    and seeing what happens.  Or, use an XML parser.

2.  The URL quoted above is old.  The latest are:
