In article <3B60F475.C3B5AC41@auckland.ac.nz> you write:
>1 <!ENTITY % use_mathml_dtd "IGNORE">
>3 <!ENTITY % mathml-charent.module "IGNORE">
>4 <!ENTITY % mathml_dtd_path "'MathML-20010221/mathml2.dtd'">
>5 <!ENTITY % mathml_dtd PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD MathML 2.0//EN"

The fragment above is fine. I see that Xerces doesn't complain if you use
Perhaps it incorrectly doesn't recognise parameter entities for the
system id part of a PUBLIC?
Did it really fail with use_mathml_dtd set to IGNORE? It doesn't when
I try it. (It shouldn't parse the contents of an ignored conditional
section at all except to recognise conditional section delimeters.)
