Re: XML Schema and Entities

If the information set of the XML document includes entity (declarations),
then these can be referenced from an attribute, just as with DTDs.
The entity declaration could have come from a parsed XML document
or by an object inserted in some kind of DOM or other API which
is entity-aware.
