Mozilla does a *very* good job in supporting nearly all the characters that are named in HTML 4.01 spec. However, there are still a few unsupported named chars. This a tracker for 100% named char support.
Just out of interest, exactly which signs aren't supported? I made a page many months ago of the HTML spec signs and every sign has something show up since at least then (even some that won't show in the original URL for this bug). http://members.nbci.com/_XMCM/huszics/wa/tecken.html Or is this a bug about potentially wrongly displayed/working signs ?
This is a tracker bug. The specific problems are filed as bugs depending on this one. The char support has per-platform differences. On Mac OS X, I see the same problems with the both test pages.

Adding dependency on bug 116990, "Vulgar Fraction entities don't use real glyphs when available."
Depends on: 116990
Is my bug 144810 ("Named entities in HTML documents are converted to numbered entities by Composer") a valid dependency for this one?
No, this bug doesn't depend on bug 144810. This one is about displaying the characters.
One of my pet peeves: writing that something exists on the web, but neglecting to give a link directly to it. "all the characters that are named in HTML 4.01 spec": http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/sgml/entities.html Thanks for the test URI that actually (tries to) render all those entities. When I look at that URI, I still see (using Mozilla 1.1a build 2002061104 on Win98) Mozilla render several of entities as a question mark "?" (such as "hArr"). There are a few (such as "ensp"emsp") that don't have the question mark, but are still rendered incorrectly (see bug 70610).
what a hack. I have not touch mozilla code for 2 years. I didn't read these bugs for 2 years. And they are still there. Just close them as won't fix to clean up.
