Textadept is silently running the `xmllint` program on XML files. I tried
creating a sample DocBook XML file and using `&nbsp;` in it, but I cannot
reproduce the error. Could you post a minimal example?

You can turn off automatic syntax checking by putting this your
`~/.textadept/init.lua`: = false
