Hello All,
	   I am trying to validate my XML files with their corresponding DTD's
using MS validating XML parser in Java but the MSXML is throwing an
exception :- Could Not find External DTD.

	   Let me explain the scenario:-

The XML file (Books.xml) I am trying to validate starts with 

 	<?XML VERSION="1.0"?>
	<!DOCTYPE BOOKS SYSTEM "books.dtd">  

and it's corresponding DTD (Books.dtd) starts with 


	(my DTD conatins only 2 elements <BOOKS> and <AUTHOR>)

Yet when I start to load the Books.xml file using the MSXML validating
parser the following exception is thrown :-

"Error Loading XML Document 'Books.xml'
 com.xml.ms.xml.parser ParseException: Could Not Find External DTD

(The Books.xml and Books.dtd files are in the same folder)

How to correct this problem??Any Suggestions???
