When it is argued that the content should be in ASCII in order to be
readable, then please make it so that the content of the website parses
well. I get for instance "Ethiopic (Ge&#x2BB;ez) / Ethiopic (Ge'ez)". This
is nor humanly readable.

To me this notion that UTF-8 cannot be used because it might break
things is rather odd when I cannot properly read all the names of
scripts on langtag.net. To me it seems that things are broken anyway.
