I'm sure you have read the code of the parser handling entities and the
big warning in the docs about the use of SAX when handling documents with
user defined entities, am I right ?
If that's the case you may have an explanation, or a patch :-)
Ok point taken, but setting aside user defined entities. Something like
<element attr1= >missing AttValue in Attribute</element>
also exhibits the same behaviour. Should it not return error, rather than the character callback being invoked?
