this does not work with certain parsers due to the
following clause in the xml spec:
If the entities in question are declared, they must
be declared as internal entities whose replacement
text is the single character being escaped or a
character reference to that character, as shown below.
in short, the parser should apparently ignore
redefinitions... but it isn't quite clear because this
'must' clause is preceded by a sentence about
using xerces (forget which version, sorry), redefining amp
and friends produces a warning from the parser and the
redefinition is ignored.
