DOMEntityReferenceobjects 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.
