Hello Keiron (please forgive my familiarity even though we've never actually
met),

Actually, that was the full error message.  That's the only thing it emits;
then stops.
xhtml-lat1.ent is actually an absolute path on our network as below so it
really doesn't have any bearing, I would think.
<!DOCTYPE section [
        <!ENTITY % XHTML-lat1 PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1//EN//XML"
                  "file://R:/3rdParty/XHTML-DTD/xhtml-lat1.ent">
        %XHTML-lat1;
        <!ENTITY % XHTML-special PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Special//EN//XML"
                  "file://R:/3rdParty/XHTML-DTD/xhtml-special.ent">
        %XHTML-special;
        <!ENTITY % XHTML-symbol PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Symbols//EN//XML"
                  "file://R:/3rdParty/XHTML-DTD/xhtml-symbol.ent">
        %XHTML-symbol;
]>

Also, yes I have declared the fo namespace in the xslt file as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.1"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format";>

since that is the only place it is needed not in the .xml source files.

I have since found, however, that if I define the three entities above in a
separate file by themselves and then declare a _single_ entity reference to
that new external file fop runs normally and character references are
inserted properly.
Curious.
I appreciate your current and future effort.
