first of all, thanks for all the responses. Special thanks to Todd for the
wrapper classes.
The solution is:
- setExpandEntities(false) does not work for Attributes.
- It is like Todd say: On the way in I have to change & to & to avoid
entity expansion.
    I use Todd's wrapper Reader class between the file and the SAXParser on
the way in.
- On the way out I need to overwrite the methods of the XMLOutputter:

  protected String escapeAttributeEntities(String s) {
    // because of the style entity references in the style attribute
    return s;
  protected String escapeElementEntities(String s) {
    // for element content
    return s;
Now it works!
