"""Named HTML entities are much easier to comprehend than numeric entities. This
module helps convert between the more typical numerical entiies and the more
attractive named entities. """

# Primarily a packaging of Ian Beck's work from
# http://beckism.com/2009/03/named_entities_python/

# There are too many little differences in Python 2 and Python 3 string
# handling syntax and symantics to have just one implementation. So there are
# two parallel implementations, multiplexed here.
