None, to the best of my knowledge. Justin Couch, who's been working on the
IETF WG on URNs, proposed a file-based resolution system that I suspect
could be integrated into a lot of XML parsers without too much fuss. You can
find his proposal at
It would only give you a local solution, instead of a global one, but that
be enough for many uses.

Many places (including the university where I work) would probably switch to
a URN based system of tracking resources tomorrow, *if* Navigator and
IE both supported URN resolution. Occassionally when stricken with fever
I consider going to work for Microsoft just to get URN resolution incorporated
to the damned browsers.....
