Re: [xml-dev] <!DOCTYPE> removed by DOMParser?

Hi Elena,

Thanks for the advice,

I am using version 1.4.1 of xerces

And parsing occurs like this

final DOMParser parser = new DOMParser();
final StringReader sreader = new StringReader(filename);
parser.parse(new InputSource(sreader));

What version of Xerces are you using?  How do you serialize your file?
The latest Xerces 1.4.3 DOMParser definitely does not remove a DOCTYPE.
Btw, why don't you use xerces-j-user@xml.apache.org mailing list to ask
questions/report bugs about Xerces?
