The page you reference uses &pound10million.  The correct syntax would be
£

Hmmm.. That isn't how the source shows up in IE. In IE, it shows up as "&pound"
which is still wrong I guess. I'm not sure why IE works without the trailing ";"

You shouldn't reopen INVALIDated bugs unless you give an explanation as to where
Mozilla/Firefox is somehow at fault.  If you want you can email ESPN to complain
about them not using standards, but this is not Firefox's fault.
