  XML applications (i.e. a combination of DTD/XSD, stylesheets, XML instances) often make use of so-called entities (see http://www.xml.com/axml/target.html#sec-physical-struct). Various types of entities exist (see [http://tech.irt.org/articles/js212/#intro]).

  Since entities affect the content of the document, and XSLT processors and other kinds of XML processors act on the content, various processing-related issues may arise. An XSLT stylesheet for example, which is sensitive to content contributed by an entity, may fail to work as expected (e.g. may not be able to generate the 'alt' for HTML pages).

  Ideally, the solution which the WG will produce will be applicable not only with regard to entities but also in the realm of XInclude (see http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude/) or even fragments (see http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/CR-xml-fragment-20010212#packaging).
  
  Note that character entity references (e.g. &aacute;) and numeric character references (NCRs) (e.g. &#x00E1;) are different things. This requirement addresses character entity references, as well as all user defined entities.'''

   1. If possible, XML applications should avoid the use of entities. 
   2. XML applications which have to make use of entities have to be build in such a way that entities can be localized easily (ie. the XML application has to be internationalized wrt. entities). A rough set of guidelines for this could look like this:
