   Re: [xml-dev] A heavier-weight proposal for character entity definition

 <character name="eacute" code="xC9"/>

A large number of the MathML entities do not map to a single unicode
code point but two (or in a few cases three). Common cases the second
character being a combining character (eg the negation / ) or the new
math variant character VS1 (to be) introduced in Unicode 3.2.
eg the ISOASMN nlE (not less than) would seem to map to
U02A7D U00338
where U02A7D is LESS-THAN OR SLANTED EQUAL TO (unicode 3.2)

so probably code would need to take a sequence of decimal or hex values,
not just a single one.
