Detailed Description

DOMEntityReference objects may be inserted into the structure model when an entity reference is in the source document, or when the user wishes to insert an entity reference.

Note that character references and references to predefined entities are considered to be expanded by the HTML or XML processor so that characters are represented by their Unicode equivalent rather than by an entity reference. Moreover, the XML processor may completely expand references to entities while building the structure model, instead of providing DOMEntityReference objects. If it does provide such objects, then for a given DOMEntityReference node, it may be that there is no DOMEntity node representing the referenced entity. If such an DOMEntity exists, then the subtree of the DOMEntityReference node is in general a copy of the DOMEntity node subtree. However, this may not be true when an entity contains an unbound namespace prefix. In such a case, because the namespace prefix resolution depends on where the entity reference is, the descendants of the DOMEntityReference node may be bound to different namespace URIs.

As for DOMEntity nodes, DOMEntityReference nodes and all their descendants are readonly.
