	Do you have a CharacterData handler defined? If so, I think
	that is your problem. You need to handle everything through
	the DefaultHandler instead.

	I have this problem as well. When I traced thru the expat
	code, I found that it translates these entities if there
	is a CharacterData handler defined. By getting rid of this
	handler, it should give you the raw entities in the DefaultHandler.

	(I say "should" because I haven't implemented the fix myself yet,
	 but this is what I'm planning to do...)
