Hi Peter,

Peter said:
These files work fine as HTML, and are conforming XML 1.0, but when I try
to parse them on my laptop using either AElfred or Xerces I get:

java.net.UnknownHostException: www.w3.org

Didier replies:
So, if I understand well, these parser automatically turn on the validation
process when a DOCTYPE is encountered in the file. You have to manually turn
off validation with an command line option. Is that right? I'll enter that
info in my notebook.

Is your point that you want parsers to be always non validating even in the
presence of a DOCTYPE in an XML document. This until the default behavior is
modified by a command line option (if the interface is a command line - but
could be something else if the interface is different). Am I reading your
concern correctly?
