Bug: spurious HTML char code makes eBook Publisher halt!

I was converting some .prc to .imp recently and came across a situation where eBook Publisher died without so much as a good-bye!

The culprit is reproduced here (in bold):
Code:
<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<p>Html documents with this entity &# 20; bomb!  No output produced by eBook Publisher v2.2.5</p>
</body>
</html>
Note for display purposes, I put a space between '#' and '2' which should be removed!

I think the author of the .prc wanted to use spaces HTML code '&# 32;' and typed the hex code 20 instead.

BTW, HTML char codes are the &words; used to represent specific characters, for example:
Code:
 '&' is represented by '&#amp;'
 is represented by '&#copy';
See the HTML Characters wiki for more information or Special Characters wiki for more advanced uses.
