So, I installed your latest pen files, but IE5 still gives screwy error

A name was started with an invalid character. Line 100, Position 19

<!ENTITY percnt "%" ><!--=percent sign-->

I replaced "%" with &#37; then I got:

The replacement text for a parameter entity must be properly nested with
parenthesized groups. Line 43, Position 9


I removed the entities for [,],{,},(,)

my new error was :

An invalid character was found inside an entity reference. Line 191,
Position 19

<!ENTITY nbsp   "&

The full text of this entry is
<!ENTITY nbsp   "&#160;" >

I tried changing it to
<!ENTITY nbsp   "&#xA0;" > and got the same error message.

So I ask the list again: has anyone, anywhere, gotten IE5 to read ISO
entity tables, or we going to have to do entity substituion on the server
