       Body:
Allow me to mention that is so severe that Maven currently prefers to stay
with dom4j-1.4-beta-8 instead of dom4-1.4 release.

The bug isdefinitely floating somehwere around dom4j and we would like to have some help of
persons that are dom4j-aware.

thanks.

Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: JELLY-28
    Summary: Bad entity processing
       Type: Bug

     Status: Open
   Priority: Blocker

    Project: jelly
 Components: 
             core / taglib.core
   Fix Fors:
             1.0-beta-4

   Assignee: james strachan
   Reporter: Incze Lajos

Environment: No special environment.

Description:
Have a file, name it a.xml with this content:

-----------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE a [
<!ENTITY x "y">
]>
<a>&x;</a>
-----------------------------

Run the below simple (maven) jelly script:

-----------------------------
<project default="java:jar"
         xmlns:j="jelly:core"
         xmlns:x="jelly:xml">

  <goal name="emnl:test">
    <x:parse var="doc" xml="a.xml"/>
    <echo><x:copyOf select="$doc"/></echo>
  </goal>

</project>
-----------------------------

The result will be this:


-----------------------------
....
emnl:test:
    [echo] <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<a>&x;y</a>
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
-----------------------------

I'm aware of the fact that the bug originally comes from dom4j.
The below dom4j program fragment

-----------------------------
....
  SAXReader xmlReader = new SAXReader();
  Document doc = xmlReader.read("a.xml");
  XMLWriter writer = new XMLWriter(System.out);
  writer.write(doc);
  writer.flush();
....
-----------------------------

will output this result:

-----------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE a><a>&x;</a>
-----------------------------

which is bad (not even well-formed). I've filed this issue
at the dom4j bugtracker
(http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=16035&atid=116035)
under the number 676427, with some notes one the possible
resolution.

But as we can see, the jelly xml tag adds a twist to the dom4j bug,
it inserts both the entity and the entity value into the tag.

Thanks, incze
