You're right, Ian.

This changes my understanding of when the replacement of the
numerical character references must occur in the conversion of
the multi-byte CJK character sets.

And it makes another thing I posted this morning incorrect.

I still can't understand why I can't see the numerical references
in Henry's page.  Is it a setting of some sort?
