It seems very likely you are making some other mistake. I just tried the 
following DTD with Xerces:

<!ENTITY % test "(oneElem|theOther)">
<!ELEMENT root %test;>
<!ELEMENT oneElem ANY>
<!ELEMENT theOther ANY>

Validates fine with, e.g., this document:

<!DOCTYPE root SYSTEM "testentity.dtd">

Unless you are trying to put the above in an internal subset, it is not 
your problem. If you are, that is your problem.
