Here is another example:

------------part of fpdoc xml file-----------------------
<module name="gfx_UTF8utils">
<descr>Is this character: <&#x2026;> displayed correctly?

... and the generated html source with UTF-8 encoding ...

------------html source------------------
<p>Is this character: <?> displayed correctly? </p>

The < and > characters went through fine, but the ellipses character did not.
