Special Characters

I use XML to render MathML as follows.

<? xml version="1.0"?>
<? xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="../xsl_UMSS/mathml.xsl"?>

It will not accept NAMED special characters such as
(ampersand)cup;

It will accept NUMERICAL special characters such as
(ampersand)#8746;

How do I get FireMath to use NUMERICAL references to special characters rather than NAMED references to special characters?

Unfortunately, Firemath does not support the substitution of named entities by the corresponding numerical ones.

In your document you might include entity definitions like those at
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml-symbol.ent

or those mentioned at
http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/chapter6.h ... ity.tables

Ah, but what if one is not using a DTD but is using XML Schema? Is there a way to include these entities in a schema?
