RE: Getting the value of an entity
This is what the function unparsed-entity-uri() is for.
Hey, this is an important function in my publishing system since I am keeping images in different subdirectories and am pointing to them from different parameter entities. The fact that a relative URI found in an external parameter entity is resolved to an absolute URI helps me maintain the lists and locations of graphics.
I also use unparsed entities to point to the XML files that I pass to the document() function for the same relative URI resolution features.
If I had had an unparsed-entity-notation-uri() function I would have been able to remove some hardwired assumptions in my publishing system.
