 Where there were entities before they should still be left as entities
until all languages are converted into utf8. There are still a few left,
and the places we made use of entities in the english files they are
usually included verbatim into otherwise translated pages, so changing
them from entities to utf8 at this stage of the transition would break
the pages for those languages.

 So the same caveat still applies: In places that are extracted verbatim
into other language pages we still have to stick to plain ascii with
entities. This especially holds true for the DPN footers and the doc
data files.
