If you are using the default MSXML2 parser that comes with IE5, the
"XSL" system that comes with that is not at all like XSL as discussed on
this list. You can get the MSXML3 upgrade then you will have th exSLT
transformation language available.

However assuming you are using XSLT, 

If you mean that your source looks like this, with the entity declared
in the DTD and the attribute on your source element  declared to be of
type ENTITY :

<!ENTITY mypic SYSTEM "a/b/c.gif" NDATA GIF>



<xxx src="mypic"/>

then you can reference the entity value as follows:

<xsl:template match="xxx">
 <img src="{unparsed-entity-uri(@src)}"/>

which would produce the output

<img src="a/b/c.gif"/>
