RE: [xml-dev] Some Problems about Sax

They mean the same as they do in XML.
SystemId is essentially the URI of a document (or more generally, of an entity). The terminology comes from SGML which predates the web and the concept of URI.
PublicId is a "public identifier", another SGML concept. It was an attempt to create a universal system for allocating globally unique names; it never really took off, but some document types do have public identifiers and you can use catalogs to translate them to URIs.

Subject: [xml-dev] Some Problems about Sax

       I'am confused about the concept of SystemId and publicId in sax. Could anyone tell me the difference between them and what they exactly mean. Many thanks!
