Bug#927001: www.debian.org: build process - check for symbols within html markup that are not using html character codes

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

If our source files as the base for the final websites are using some special
characters instead of the correct HTML character code especially RDF
functionality can break on the user side.

For example the usage of '©' instead of '©' or '©' will
provoke XML parsers to stop with displaying an error message.

Other symbols that fall into that category are the ampersand symbol (&),
the "euro" sign (€) but also the trademark sign (™).

The build process should try to detect such symbols within the HTML
language tags and finally fail with an error message or replace the wrong
character with the correct HTML character code.

The origin for this report is #926986
