Yep, quite complicated - it has to do with Mozilla not loading  
external entities, etc. It's a long-known bug (since ~2000, see bugs  
#22942, #69799, #255747 and several others in Mozilla's Bugzilla);  
there are several work-arounds like using only internal entity defs,  
using &#xA0 and co or even populating Mozilla's <bin>/res/dtd  
directory but not one of them is really practical so we decided to  
just live with it... :(

Cheers,
Erik
