[Twisted-Python] Strange DOMTemplate error

I have been toying around with DOM Templates, practically using the example 
code off the web page (with a few minor changes), and I found something 
very strange.

I received xml.sax._exceptions.SAXParseException whenever I placed the 
string '©'
inside my template HTML.  This, as it turns out, applied to just about any 
HTML special character.  I tested it with ©   &foo; and a range 
of others.  It also broke (although with a different error) whenever I 
tried using numeric character codes, like ™.

Is this a 'feature', or some strange bug?  Figured I'd mention it here.
