That is your problem. You need to create a DTD internal subset declaration, like this: <!DOCTYPE root-element-name [ <!ENTITY copy "&copy;"> <!ENTITY aelig "&aelig;"> etc. etc. ]> That will cause the entity reference "æ" to expand to the string "æ", which seems to be what you want. > John Cowan wrote: > > All you actually have to do is to ensure that the next character > > (if not #, see above) is a NAMESTRT character, and that all characters > > until ; are either NAME or NAMESTRT characters.

I was talking about a different case: entity references within entity declarations, not entity references within the document instance itself.
