The NOTATION type of attribute does *not* apply to entities referenced
by an element.  Only the NDATA specification on the entity declaration
does that.  The notation attribute refers to the element's *content*:

   4.211 notation attribute: An attribute whose value is a _notation
   name_ ([41]) that identifies the data content notation of the
   element's _content_ ([24]).

The XML specification does not, however, make this point.  In fact, it
doesn't appear to say what the effect of a notation attribute is.
