It generates errors for (the first occurrence of) each element.
Incidentally, validating parsers must provide a mode in which they
do not report violations of validity constraints - see the definition
of "validity constraint" and "at user option". This provides a means
of ensuring that all entity declarations are read, without needing to
declare elements and attributes.
