Simon, I think Tim is refering to section 4.4.5 - no whitespaces are
mentioned if the P.E. occurs as part of the literal value of another entity.
The table in section 4.4 shows two possible uses for P.E.s, and they are
spelled out in sections 4.4.5 and 4.4.8.

You know, my admiration for validating parser writers is increasing by leaps
and bounds.  They have to get this stuff right!
