  &ldquo; &uuml; are not predefined character entities.

  They apear as literal text strings

  '&' 'l' 'd' 'q' 'u' 'o' ';'

  and so when searialized to XML the '&' character is replaced by '&amp;' giving

No. If &ldquo; is defined by the DTD used by the input document then you
will not get this text string, you will get a single character output,
either as character data or a character reference, or an entity

If the entity is not defined by the DTD used on input, teh input is not
well formed and you will get no output at all.
