I knew I should have bookmarked that link: I read an email exchange on 
one of the Mozilla developer lists describing the parse/validation 
strategy Mozilla uses. Essentially, it is "incomplete". One result is 
that entities such as &ldquo; stored externally to the DTD are not 
resolved (or normalized?). If I understand what I read and it is 
accurate, it may be the entity that is generating the error for you.

Of course, this is a "what" response, not a "why" response. :-)
