that character was entered in the source file just isn't there.

That'd be a nice feature, to "re-reference" entities on output. Does anyone know any processors that support this?

I'd particularly like to get named entities back, e.g. my "&eacute;" and "&nbsp;" etc. Currently I do the pre-/post-processing thing, but I'd be happy if the output handler could relieve me of the chore. In my case, ensuring consistency of the referencing in the output would be a happy side-effect.
