Description

We should recognise entity declarations in DTDs; at least to the extent that the XML parsers in browsers recognise them. This is typically limited to handling the internal DTD subset (probably with no external entity references; but the exact subset of XML that's accepted is unclear.)

Don't the requirements for a non-validating processor make the exact subset clear?

I meant, the subset that's accepted by the DOM parsers in the browser is unclear - there's no particular reason to believe it's aligned with anything found in a W3C specification!
