Subject Suppressing internal character entities
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2001 21:38:01 GMT

I've my own handler that implements org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler.
Specifically I'm interested in the method startEntity(). Is there a
mechanism to suppress the startEntity event with respect to internal
character entities such as &apos; etc. Programmatically, I could check
within the startEntity() method for each of the 5 special characters. But I
was wondering is there a cleaner solution than this brute force approach.
