It's also true that a conformant OASIS XML Catalog resolver
will always treat URIs beginning with "urn:publicid:"; as public IDs,
not system IDs or plain URIs.  So if you specify a schemaLocation
of "urn:publicid:blah";, an XML-Catalog-compliant system will
search the Public ID part of your catalog for "blah" after undoing
the transcription rules.

No, it has no clue: a URI is a URI.

are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
