Hi Mukul,

As far as I know, that will always fail... it fails at the lowest
level in the parser, before you get chance to handle it.

I had a similar problem when processing rss feeds - some contained
entities but no doctype - and I tried and failed to process it using
xml tools (eg supplying an entity resolver to the parser).

In the end I resorted to string processing the feed before parsing
it.....   (although I guess you can argue that non-well-formed input
means a non-xml solution)

(rss made me smile by the way - 101 different ways of wedging html into xml)
