Here's my doctype decl:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="xsl/wrapper_dividends.xsl"?>
[<!ENTITY % isolat SYSTEM "../xml_isolat1.ent" >
<!ENTITY % isopub SYSTEM "../xml_iso-pub.ent" >
<!ENTITY % isonum SYSTEM "../xml_iso-num.ent" >

ie is finding the external files (only tried locally) and translating the
entities alright. I have eacute's elsewhere in the file and they are being
translated fine. So in my previous xsl snippet if the rule was:
        <xsl:for-each select="RECORDITEM">
          <td align="right">
            <font face="verdana" size="1">
            <xsl:value-of select="."/>
the entity is translating. But when the rule is <xsl:value-of
select="text()"/> IE is not interpreting the entity as text.

  Sorry, I guess I should have specified I have the entity defined as 
  <!ENTITY eacute           "&#x000E9;" ><!--=small e, acute accent -->
  in external files 

MSXML does read external DTD files so the most likely cause is a bad
URI to the DTD, eg a path that works locally but not on a server.
However if that is the case you usually get an error from the XML parse
saying the file could not be found...
