When I parse a XML document (having a DOCTYPE declaration in it), by using
sun's XML parser, I got the XmlDocument Object initialized with all the
nodes etc. If I invoke the api getSystemId() on this XmlDocument, it returns
NULL but when I write XML back from this XmlDocument Object, it generate the
whole XML tree with DOCTYPE(including system id for the DTD) declaration in

My question is, why the getSystemId() API returns NULL ?  But the systemId
along with DOCTYPE declaration is generated during writing XML back from
XmlDocument object.

Also if I invoke getDoctype(), it return DocumentType object which doesn't
have enough public method to get the system id for the DocType of this

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.
