Comment (by demetris):

 Replying to [comment:4 westi]:
 > Named entities are so much clearer than magic numbers and ideally where
 a named entity exists it is much more readable to use it.
 Using entities at all in the year 2011 is not something I would describe
 as ideal in any way. :-D

 Why not just start using straight UTF-8 in strings?  I’ve thought about it
 a few times and I cannot see any reason against:

  *  It’s not an issue for XML processors
  *  It’s not an issue for WP translators (translations are UTF-8 anyway)
  *  It’s not an issue for modern text editors

 Am I missing something?
