	I think this might be because sax_builder doesn't do anything
for entity references; I'll look into it tonight.

	If that's the case, this bug is already fixed, since
SingleParentNodeList disappeared in the restructuring.  BTW, I now
have a 250-line test suite written, which the DOM code passes; this
gives me a bit more confidence that the new code won't break things.
