Re: [xml] Undefined character entities and libxml

I have documents with the XHTML 1.1 doctype:

These documents contain character entities like &nbsp;

I would like to be able to parse these documents into a tree without
generating errors like this:
root.xml:26: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined
host/">Parent Directory</a>/</td><td class="m">&nbsp;</td><td class="s">- &nbsp;

I built all of the catalogs needs for XHTML 1.1 and I can run the
documents through "xmllint -valid -nonet -noout doc.xml" without
errors. (Was there some place to get the xhtml 1.1 DTD as an rpm? I
could only find the xhtml 1.0 rpm)

  No I only packaged the 1.0 version not the 1.1.

Is it possible to run the docs through libxml in non-validating mode
without having the entities defined and not get error reports?

  It's an error, but not a fatal error, since there is an external
subset but it's not loaded.

 you will need to load the DTDs, while still not validating.
It's an intermediate parser processing, add
  --loaddtd : fetch external DTD
option for this.

xmllint with --noent has no effect on the error messages.

  yes, that one ask to substitute the entities found by their replacement
in the tree, but if they are not found ...
