Both expat-1.2 and expat-1.95.6 can NOT parse
parameter entity. Who can tell me what reason is it
for ?

Just like the follow sample can NOT pass expat parser:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE aaa [
<!ENTITY % common "id CDATA #REQUIRED">
<!ELEMENT aaa ANY>
<!ATTLIST aaa %common;>
]>
<aaa id="test"/>

    "The external subset and external parameter entities also
    differ from the internal subset in that in them, parameter-
    entity references are permitted within markup declarations,
    not only between markup declarations."

    Receiving an error for your testcase is required, and
    therefore, it is not a bug.
