Great explanation. In this case I need to suck in xhtml character 
entities but save out UTF-8-encoded Unicode for the next application in 
the workflow - and this second solution would round-trip the entities, I 
think? Pasting entity declarations into the source file each time I get 
the problem seems the simplest solution.
