Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2006-01-09 04:33:57 PST
Fix part of bug 4948 - allow Unicode surrogates to be encoded as HTML numeric entities. This is invalid, 
but Firefox allows this.

Is the fact that Firefox allows these incorrect entity values sufficient reason
for us to support them too?

Have we seen these in the wild?

r=me, anyway -- it's hard to see a major downside to making this tiny change

No, at least not me.

We have bug 22210 for maybe undoing this.
