There is no way of forcing entity references to be output, either in HTML or
in XHTML output, because they are not part of the data model. Saxon provides
some extensions for controlling it with HTML (though it seems that what it
does by default is the format you happen to prefer), but in XHTML it's more
difficult because you have to generate the DOCTYPE declaration as well.

Why does it matter to you whether special characters are output as entity
references, numeric character references, or as native Unicode characters?
