   Re: [xml-dev] general entity

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The only problem I see is that you need to wrap your entity declarations
in a DOCTYPE statement:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE mydoctype [
   <!ENTITY % myOtherDTD SYSTEM "myOtherDTD.dtd">
   <!ENTITY dataTest "replacement text">
