xml entity example
For some reason I've seen three followups to this note, but
not the original note ...

I ran Sun's parsers and they warned of a variety of redefined
entities ... for example, "&AaronSmall;" defined in two
files, both "athletics.dtd" and "diamondbacks.dtd".  (See
the list below.)

I did notice that this relies on correct interpretation of
relative URIs, which I know have been handled incorrectly
by at least two other "validating" parsers (perhaps not in
their current releases though).
