even if I can get some XML parser to support this, what I would really like
would be a standard way of doing this between different parsers.  Perhaps
this could be something for SAX 3?? (sure its probably a ways off, but no
reason we can't discuss it, right?? and if we get parser to support
something which is SAX 3 -ish, it'll make our ports later that much

registering a catalogue should be simple enough, something like:

MyDTDCatalog catalog = new MyDTDCatalog;

of course, the real trick is going to be figuring out what the methods, etc.
for "MyDTDCatalog" should be.
but I'd like to open up some discussion on it.

(of course, there should be a similar thing in DOM, but I don't know
anything about DOM...)
