Correct. The character (numeric) entitity references are expanded upon 
parsing and replaced by the corresponding WideChar. This corresponds to 
the W3C XML specification and is not a bug.
The 5 predefined symbolic entities (< > & ' ") are 
treated the same way and expanded immediately, too. Other symbolic 
entities are not expanded by default (although this can be enabled by 
setting Options.ExpandEntities to True).
