That's why the code snippet I showed has 
  vr.ValidationType = ValidationType.None;
to prevent DTD validation occuring. It so happens that all the DTD processing code exists in the XmlValidatingReader while only well-formedness checking is done by the XmlTextReader.

	However, I have a related question  that maybe Dare can answer.  If entity
	expansion is turned on, according to your example, you will be operating in
	validating mode.  How does it handle the common case where a document does
	not have a complete DTD but only declares a few entities?  Does the
	processor expand the entities and then continue to parse, or does it stop
	with a validation error because a complete DTD is not available?
