Ah, cognoscenti insight at last. In terms that even I understand, the problem is that xml2po(1) strains to handle a construct like this: <!ENTITY % FOO SYSTEM "foo.xml"> &FOO; in the local DTD part of the <DOCTYPE> element; that's the stuff between the '' characters. Ordinary <!ENTITY> elements, such as: <!ENTITY INSERT-ME SYSTEM "/a/b/c.xml"> and then later, in the document proper: &INSERT-ME; are handled fine. We should be using an <xi:include> for that anyway, so the document authors need to be given a new practice standard. Thank you very much for the help; Houston, we have a plan! -- I'm already an anomaly, I shall soon be an anachronism, and I have every intention of dying an abuse!
