Re: Resolving ENTITY attributes

The application I am working on is precisely that: an SGML application that is designed also to be XML-conformant. What's wrong with that? By designing the app this way, I am hoping to make practical use of the design principle that XML offers a subset of the facilities provided by SGML. I'm sure I won't be the only person thinking along these lines. To restate an earlier suggestion, one way of dealing with this specific case that involves no extensions to the syntax of XSLT is to say that the "way of determining a string value" for attribute nodes of type ENTITY is to take the normalized value and replace it by the SYSTEM value(s).
