The spec does not explictly say that algorithm is not used, but it can not list
all possible non-used algorithm. if such double parsing were to be used the
string "&amp;" would, like the string "&" be a syntax error (unterminated
reference, element content of &lt;a/&gt; would generate an element node, etc.
There is no way that the spec can be interepreted in that way.
