I'm having trouble figuring things out again...
Can anyone tell me why in the following example in the spec Appdx D

<!ENTITY example "<p>An ampersand (&#38;#38;) may be escaped
numerically (&#38;#38;#38;) or with a general entity
(&amp;amp;).</p>" >
when parsed the &#38;#38;#38; is replaced with &#38;#38; which when
referenced gives &#38;
but &amp;amp; when is parsed it remains &amp;amp; in the examples given,
and only becomes &amp; when referenced.
An error?
