All this is saying is that if, like Lynx, you do have an internal 10646
representation, you can go through that, but you can also short cut the
process and translate directly to the glyph.

However, the names for the Greek characters are defined as SGML entities,
which map to numeric entities, which are in 10646.  The formal definition,
in the DTD and supporting entity files, clearly states that the names
refer to specific 10646 characters.
