I have prepared a DTD and want to validate XML documents (using Apache's
xerces parser).  The problem is, my XML document can embed HTML tags.
Therefore, I thought I just need to include the HTML entity referencing
the (X)HTML dtd.  However, the validation fails with the following error

[Fatal Error] xhtml1-transitional.dtd:620:30: The value of attribute
"charset" m
ust begin with either a single or double quote character.
Stopping after fatal error: The value of attribute "charset" must begin
with eit
her a single or double quote character.

The XML document:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE test SYSTEM "test.dtd">


The DTD document:
<!ENTITY % HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<!ELEMENT test ( ANY )>


Is this a problem with the parser or the DTD that I'm using for HTML
tags?  How can I get around this problem?
