True, my windows executable (v 1.2.5) catches this when I turn validation
on with -v flag:

Warning: Attlist declaration ends in different entity from that in which it 
ts in entity "CLOSE" defined at line 2 char 1 of file:///C:/temp/petest.dtd
in unnamed entity at line 6 char 58 of file:///C:/temp/petest.dtd

It is this "not from the same entity thing" that makes %ATTLIST; and 
%CLOSE; illegal (and
making any DTD declaration start like <!ELEMENT or <[IGNORE[ to be written 
as PE reference illegal).
Same thing that makes splitting general entity references like <!ENTITY e1 
"<!--"> and <!ENTITY e2 "-->">
illegal, is this true?
but shouldn't this be a well-formedness error?

with respect,
Toni Uusitalo
