Bug #32441 Tags and entity references in entities are not parsed

When the replacement for an entity contains xml tags or another entity these do not get parsed by PHP5. Such constructs are used for example inside the PHP documentation to mark up often used strings like warnings and section titles. This code works in PHP4.

Reproduce code:


$xml = <<<HERE
<!DOCTYPE test [
    <!ENTITY test "<abc>&amp;</abc>">

function startHandler($parser, $name, $attrs) {print("StartHandler Called\n");}
function endHandler($parser, $name) {print("EndHandler Called\n");}
function characterHandler($parser, $data) {echo "Character: $data\n";}

$parser =& xml_parser_create('');
xml_parser_set_option($parser, XML_OPTION_CASE_FOLDING, false);

xml_set_element_handler($parser, 'startHandler', 'endHandler');
xml_set_character_data_handler($parser, 'characterHandler');

if (!xml_parse($parser, $xml, true))
    echo xml_error_string($parser);



Expected result:
StartHandler Called
StartHandler Called
Character: &
EndHandler Called
EndHandler Called

Actual result:
StartHandler Called
Character: <abc>&amp;</abc>
EndHandler Called

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

See bug #27908
