in thread An ampersand is not well-formed XML data?

You only need to enclose undeclared entities in CDATA sections. If you declare your entities in a DTD(internal or external) you can use them normally.

<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE sanity [ <!ENTITY check "&#666;"> ]> <sanity> &check; </sanity>
I usually inlcude the three xhtml character entity sets in my DTD. This way I don't get errors if somebody slips in a £ or a ¥
<!-- SPECIAL CHARACTER ENTITY SETS DECLARED AND REFERENCED HERE --> <!ENTITY % xhtml-lat1 PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1 for XHTML//E +N" "xhtml-lat1.ent"> %xhtml-lat1; <!ENTITY % xhtml-special PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Special for XHTML//E +N" "xhtml-special.ent"> %xhtml-special; <!ENTITY % xhtml-symbol PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Symbols for XHTML//E +N" "xhtml-symbol.ent"> %xhtml-symbol;
Update:Here are the links to those character entity sets

Latin 1
Special
Symbols
