surely this is 1 on 1, because (e.g.) &acirc; represents just one

i.e. if you give your stylesheet a doctype

<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
  <!ENTITY acirc  "&#226;">
  <!ENTITY ecirc  "&#234;">
  <!ENTITY icirc  "&#238;">

then you can say





"When they bring me fear soup to eat,
I try not to eat it, I try to send it back.
But sometimes I'm too afraid to and have to eat it anyway."
