My original implementation was just to ignore ampersands in the original scan of the entity value. But, if raw ampersands are not allowed, then I'm just asking whether I'm obligated to prove that any ampersand is at least provisionally part of a general entity (even if it later turns out not to be a legal one) during the scan of the entity value. And, if I think its not, that it should be considered in error? xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
