While in most cases this is what the user meant, in some cases it might not be. The SGML definition does state that the semicolon is sometimes optional (http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/charset.html#entities). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create an html file with &trade with no semicolon 2. open this html file in Mozilla Actual Results: the trademark symbol is displayed Expected Results: &trade should be displayed because the semicolon is missing
Like you said yourself, the trailing semicolon can be optional in some cases, as the spec outlines. Unless you have a testcase where the semicolon should have been required and the entity rendered despite no semi-colon, this is not a bug.
