using xslt you can't easily output entity references.

While this is sometimes inconvenient, 99 times out of a hundred, when
people ask for this facility theydon't actually need it and XSLT will
just automatically do something equivalent on its own.

But you said your entities were to graphics files, are they NDATA
entities, that you reference as <xxx  yyy="entityname"/> or are they
somehow general entities that you need to refertpo a &entityname;

oh but you said you were writing HTMl so they can't be NDATA.
The XSL way normally would just to write out the definition of the
general entity in place rather tahn make a reference, is that
unsuitable? especially for HTMl it seems more portable.
