This is not normal. The style.xsl declares the ISOnum set of
character entities, which contains a definition for &frac14;
It sounds like your parser is not finding that ISOnum
entity set. Perhaps the entity resolver is not working
on your system. There are a couple of ways to test this.

Do "./ test" which includes some tests for the
entity-resolver. See also installing/tests.html

Do "./ docs" which will fail at xdocs/catalog-test.xml
if entity-resolver is not working.

Another thing that you can do is to raise the verbosity
level of the entity-resolver to see if it complains.
See instructions in userdocs/concepts/catalog.html

It seems strange that your exception is reported by
com.caucho.xml... Does this mean that you use a different
parser than that shipped with Cocoon?
