// For SGML compliance, and given the SGML declaration for HTML syntax,
// it's enough to replace these two, provided that the declaration
// for the HTML version we generate (and as supported by the browser)
// specifies that all the other symbols used in rawVal are
// within the right character class (i.e., they're not
// some multinational weird characters not in the BASESET).
// We assume that 1) the browser will support whatever is remaining
// in the formula and 2) the TeX formulae are generally governed
// by even stricter character restrictions so it should be enough.
// On some incompliant browsers, additional translation of
// '>' and '<' into "&gt;" and "&lt;", respectively, might be needed;
// but I'm unaware of particular modern (last 4 years) versions
// with such problems, so let's not do it for performance.
// Also, some brousers will (wrongly) not process the entity references
// inside the attribute value and show the &...; form instead,
// so we won't create entites unless necessary to minimize clutter there.
