HTML enitites in MAML?

How can I use HTML symbol entities such as ≤(≤) or greek letters like α(α) in my MAML conceptual documents? I get an error when I run SHFB.

SHFB: Error BE0057: The conceptual content file '<deleted>' with ID '<deleted>' is not valid: Reference to undeclared entity 'le'. Line 43, position 343.

I tried wrapping them in <markup></markup> but I get the same error.

The .NET XML parser only recognizes a few basic entities.  All others need be be encoded in their numeric form (i.e. &copy; is &#169;).

Thanks! Works like a champ. Too bad the default HTML Help 1 formating makes &pi; = &#960; look like the letter 'n'.

Great product, BTW.
