	I've been grappling with this same problem.

	I'm using expat, and have disabled most of the entity translation
	by processing all the character data with the "default" handler
	(i.e., implement expat's "default" callback handler, but not 
	its "character data" handler). 

	This takes care of the text data, but I still have a problem
	with attribute values in elements. expat insists on translating
	entities there.

	I wonder if this hole could be closed by also processing elements
	thru the default handler (i.e., do not implement the "start/end
	handlers, either)? Does anyone know? 

	Do other parsers offer ways to disable entity translation?
