xml.dom.minidom entity reference translation

The XML parser in this module appears to be a bit heavy on spaces
around the entity references: < & > etc.
It is removing all of them leaving the translated characters next to
the first non-blank on either side.
<monty> abc def > xyz </monty>
Elsewhere, spaces appear to be left intact.
Is it supposed to do this?
Can I stop it somehow? It is a serious impediment to a good round-trip
