xml spec
In section 4.5 of the latest XML spec it says that if the predefined
entities are declared they must be declared as follows:

<!ENTITY lt        "<">
<!ENTITY gt       ">">
<!ENTITY amp    "&">
<!ENTITY apos   "'">
<!ENTITY quote  '"'>

Is the definition for amp valid XML?  The definition of EntityValue is
given is section 1.5 as:

EntityValue := '"' ([^%&] | PEReference | Reference)* '"'
	| "'" ([^%&] | PEReference | Reference)* "'"

This indicates that "&" is not a valid entity value?
