The ent file extension is used for SGML entities.

In SGML and its derived markup languages HTML and XML, an entity is a named body of data associated with a document, or the unnamed document entity itself. Once defined, a named entity can be referenced any number of times within the document, via entity references.

An entity typically consists of a sequence of one or more characters, either encapsulated within a declaration of the entity's existence, or encoded and stored externally in a text file.

Such entities and their references are comparable to macros and include files in programming languages. However, entities don't necessarily have to contain parseable text; they may also be binary files that are included in a document only by reference, with the entity name as the value of an ENTITY-type attribute.
