You might be able to get around it by somehow parsing it as XML 1.1
without modifying the prolog, but you'll most likely have to just
preprocess the file to replace/remove the character reference.

If the prolog states its version 1.0 and the file contains #1 then its
not really XML, so maybe try and correct it at source...
