""" Utility for parsing HTML entity definitions available from:

      http://www.w3.org/ as e.g.
      http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/HTMLlat1.ent

    Input is read from stdin, output is written to stdout in form of a
    Python snippet defining a dictionary "entitydefs" mapping literal
    entity name to character or numeric entity.

    Marc-Andre Lemburg, mal@lemburg.com, 1999.
    Use as you like. NO WARRANTIES.
