I tried that. MSXML4 didn't report the syntax error with NewParser set to 
True (on the DOM).
the dtd was (same as in my first post):


It seems like MSXML4 handled this correctly (? see my first post) when 
invoked with default settings (via IE6) - NewParser property turns some DTD 
well-formedness checkings/processing off I assume, it doesn't expand 
default attribute with this setting either. I'm not sure what's the
correct/acceptable behaviour anymore...
So, if %ATTLIST; and %CLOSE; pe references should
raise syntax error, MSXML invoked thru IE6 browser seems to handle this 
is accepted and default attribute value is expanded correctly via IE6 too.


with respect,
