Sorry, guess I am too deep into the code, not spelling things out.
Pod supports entities as E<entity>, akin to &entity; in XML.  But
instead of just passing them on (E<uuml> -> &uuml;), I thought it
would be good to resolve them locally. So, what I am actually needing
is a library that would return "ΓΌ" when I'd ask for "uuml".

Since the entities are already available as DTDs (ISOlat1.pen, ...) I
reckoned I might as well just use them.  Therefore, I parse the DTDs,
grab the entity and ask for its "literal value".

In other words:
    final DTDParser parser = new DTDParser();
    final Entity entity = parser.getDocType().getEntity(entityName);
    if (entity != null) {
        return entity.getLiteralValue();
