Note that if you are generating the XML from a CGi script, a Java server plugin (e.g. Solaris 2.6's upcoming server) or otherwise, you probably need to make sure that clients don't try to look for files in the same "directory" as your SGML. E.g. http://docs.su.com/ab2/alluser/ADVOSUG/@xmlChunk/113.dsl does a database query into presumably DynaBase (right, Jon?). In this case, you want a processing instruction (or some other markup) to say that * there is no catalog file http://docs.su.com/ab2/alluser/ADVOSUG/@xmlChunk/catalog * the dtd is not accessible at http://docs.su.com/ab2/alluser/ADVOSUG/@xmlChunk/113.dtd (and _this_ is where it is...) * the style sheet isn't there either (and _this_ is where it is...) We had to do this for SoftQuad Panorama for exactly this reason. For example, John Price-Wilkin served up the Middle English Corpus in SGML using PAT, but couldn't easily cope with Panorama looking for CATLOG or catalog in the middle of a database query In general, if you find yourself doing probes to see if files exist using http, you've probably made a design error somewhere, as this isn't a good use of http. So allow the processing instructions.
