It looks like he's trying to see if it's possible to force a character
reference into the output by putting the 7 characters & # 8 2 2 6 ; into
the stylesheet. Of course, the &, as character data, will always be
serialized as &amp; or &#38;, so it's not going to work. :) He should just
put the 1 bullet character into the stylesheet by specifying it as
&#8226; and not worry about how it gets serialized.
