    Since this is an XML application, then at the level of XML parsing,
    &#233 must be interpreted as e-acute; he is not allowed to have
    agreements with his users about replacing &#233 with anything else.

    As already noted, Unicode says nothing about this, since this is a
    higher level protocol.
