XSLT transforms trees into trees, and the tree contains the logical
structure of the document after expanding entity references in the source.
The underlying assumption in XSLT is that entities are a physical coding
convenience, they do not convey useful information. If you are using
entities to represent logical links or relationships, consider using a
different mechanism.
