( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As is pointed out in the XML spec, DTDs aren't just for validation; they also tell you what the default value of attributes are, and potentially contain entity declarations. In a way, DTDs contain some of the document's information. So, because these things are needed to 'read' the document, conforming parsers are required to read them if they are declared -- whether or not the parser is validating.

If you're sure the document's valid, you could strip out the DOCTYPE declaration before siccing your parser on it.

update : an even better solution would be to get a local copy of the DTD and use catalog resolution to find it. A catalog resolver can tell a parser where to look for a DTD with a given public ID, irrespective of the system ID (the URL in the doctype declaration).

If not P, what? Q maybe?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
