I understand the above answer.  Maybe this is a different issue, but I don't
understand the following entity declaration--from the example "Main
stylesheet" in Dave Pawson's "XSL-FO":

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
    <!ENTITY sp "<xsl:text> </xsl:text>">

I'm sure the answer is in the book or FAQs, but I can't find it--doubtless
because I'm so new to all this that I don't know where to look.  I'm using
oXygen, and I don't get an error message with the above.  I just don't
understand the purpose of the entity declaration.

Thanks to anyone who doesn't mind answering a rank beginner question.
