View source shows semicolons after entities even when they aren't there.  The
testcase to be attached contains:

This is an &ntilde entity.

But view-source shows:

This is an ñ entity.

Tested on: 1999-07-17-08-M9 viewer, Linux.

Changed handling of entity semicolons. Now we store them if found, and strip
them for unicode conversion.
