In future, please use the saxon-help list or forum (via the saxon project on
SourceForge) for questions that are so obviously product-specific.

The implementation of saxon:parse() will try to create an instance of the
class registered in the Saxon Configuration using setSourceParserClass() (or
-x on the command line). This must be an implementation of XMLReader. You
could define your own implementation of XMLReader that proxies or subclasses
a standard SAX parser after preinitializing its EntityResolver. The only
possible problem is that this parser class would also be used for other
documents, for example those read using doc() or document().
