HTML::Parser bug?
Message ID:
Hi all,

When I pass the following string to HTML::Parser:parse()

"String containing entities to be replaced, for instance &uarr2;a";

this is what I get in my text handler:

"String containing entities to be replaced, for instance"

I am using Perl 5.6.0 on Mandrake Linux 8.0 (kernel 2.4.3-20mdk) and the 
latest HTML::Parser version (3.25).
It his a known problem?  Is there any work around it?

Thanks in advance
