I know what DTD means, I meant there is none I know of.  :)

I tried encoding it as decimal and hexadecimal notation and it always
ends up being '?'.  So Michael's theory that the documentation content
gets copied as-is is not quite true.  My example using
<&#x2026;>   and becoming   <?>   in the .html file proves
that somewhere fpdoc is doing something with the documentation
