[xml] Fwd: continued problem with Python, libxml2 and entities

It turns out that the same transform run through xsltproc gives the correct result. 

What I am expecting to see is: 
<?xml version="1.0"?> 

When I run it using test.py, the result I get is: 
<?xml version="1.0"?> 

So, as the xsltproc version gives me the correct result, I guess I can eliminate the library as the source of 
the problem, instead it would appear to be a problem with my Python code, or the Python wrapper. 

Any ideas?

The continuing saga!

I seem to have moved the entity issue from libxml2 to libxslt...

Using the following testcase (using a standard identity  
transformation) now loses the entity.

replacing <xsl:copy> with <xsl:copy-of> on the <p> node produces  
output with the entity, as does using <xsl:value-of> on the same node.

import libxml2
import libxslt

sourcedoc = libxml2.parseFile( 'test.xml' )
styledoc = libxml2.parseFile( 'test.xsl' )
style = libxslt.parseStylesheetDoc(styledoc)
result = style.applyStylesheet(sourcedoc, None)
print style.saveResultToString( result )

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="test.xsl" ?>

<!DOCTYPE content [
      <!ENTITY copy "&#169;">


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:apply-templates match="." />

<xsl:template match="@*|node()">
              <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
