That is exactly right.  The real problem here is that the www.xmlnews.org
server is serving up this DTD with the mime type "text/xml" even though a
DTD is strictly NOT an XML document.  If it served it up as plain text then
IE5 would not trigger the XML Mime Viewer and this client side error would
be avoided.

I have tested that a DTD (or any external entity) containing <?xml
encoding="utf-8"?> loads fine when it is loaded as a DTD and not directly as
an XML document.
