Change all built in named entities to numeric entities
|Reported by:||Chase-san||Owned by:|
In the core code, this should be done for easier compatibility with html 5. Polyglot markup only has 5 named entities. These need not be changed. They are amp, lt, gt, apos, and quot.
Named entities are case-sensitive, which may cause problems. Numbers do not have case, which means they do not have this issue.
Changing entities from named to numeric is a rather small task and it should greatly help overall portability. I am unaware of any implementation that supports only named entities.
Also numeric entities should be infinitesimally quicker to look up by browsers, being a numeric index.
