Er uh you sure John? I betcha most parsers accept it. The XML Spec
never did a good job of making up its mind whether it was defining the
pre-entity-expansion or post-entity-expansion infoset. The correct
solution is of course to discard all entities except numeric character
references, cf XML-SW. -Tim
