The entity reference node types are XML_ENTITY_REF_NODE, and, from 
looking at the source code, the nodes seem to be plain xmlNodes and 
don't need to be casted to any other struct type.

So, 2 questions:
1. What useful things can I discover about this node other than the 
name? Maybe nothing. I'm clueless.

  Well an entity REF points though content to an entity DECL, 
see xmlEntityPtr / struct _xmlEntity , after the usual 
navigation fields you will find

Thanks. Does that mean that I should cast the xmlNode* (of type
XML_ENTITY_REF_NODE) to an xmlEntity* ?

  For a reference, no, the only field used are name, content and
the navigation stuff, no cast should be needed.
