Personally I think the best way to resolve this is to use a PUBLIC
rather than a SYSTEM identifier (which is what you're using I believe).

PUBLIC identifiers avoid the need to hard code path names into DOCTYPE
Until recently there was no easy/standard way to achieve this in XML.

Norman Walsh has an article [1] on this, with some accompanying classes
which should
help you out further.
