Re: error in DTD with multiple entities

In article <3B73ED7B.BBCA8863@east.fedex.com> you write:

There's nothing you can do about this in general without changing
one of the DTDs.

One remote possibility: some DTDs define parameter entities for the
names of elements, for example to handle namespaces (as discussed
in another thread).  If you're lucky and this is the case, you can
override those definitions in the internal subset.
