       XML::DOM::EntityReference - An XML ENTITY reference in XML::DOM


       XML::DOM::EntityReference extends XML::DOM::Node.

       EntityReference 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
       EntityReference objects. If it does provide such objects, then for a given EntityReference
       node, it may be that there is no Entity node representing the referenced entity; but if
       such an Entity exists, then the child list of the EntityReference node is the same as that
       of the Entity node. As with the Entity node, all descendants of the EntityReference are

       The resolution of the children of the EntityReference (the replacement value of the
       referenced Entity) may be lazily evaluated; actions by the user (such as calling the
       childNodes method on the EntityReference node) are assumed to trigger the evaluation.
