This snippet gives an error (Mako 0.8, Python 2.6.6).

>>> Template('hello ${data|entity}!').render(data="world")

    the "entity" filter doesn't seem to work anyway even in 0.7.3:

    Template('hello ${data|entity}!').render(data="<world")
    return compat.text_type(text).translate(self.codepoint2entity)
    TypeError: character mapping must return integer, None or unicode
