Did you try using relative paths instead of absolute file paths?
("dtd\1.0\mydtd.dtd" instaed of "file:\d:\dtd\1.0\mydtd.dtd"). You will
have to maintain the same directory structure on both the generating and
receiving ends. Of course, this is possible only if the dtd and the
servlet reside on the same server.

Another option would be to use an internal dtd.
