Haddock isn't restricted to HTML output.  So it wouldn't make much sense if 
HTML entities could be used.  As I understand, only the Haddock markup 
characters ("/", "@" etc.) have special meaning in doc comments.  So the 
logical thing would be if, e.g., "&szlig;" would be translated to the HTML 
code "&amp;szlig;" in order to show up as "&szlig;" in the browser.

I will check this soon.
