You can put some character data in an entity, and refer to that entity by
its URI in the XML document.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE [ <!ENTITY myParam SYSTEM "someURI"> ]>

Your XML parser must be able to resolve someURI, so typically it will have
to be a path to a file on a local system, or a network location beginning
with http://. In theory you could extend whatever resolver the parser is
using and make it handle a custom URI that identifies character data you
are passing in from elsewhere.
