Confusion regarding notation processing

myformat exe
            After having read about the purpose/declaration of  NOTATIONS in
XML from the spec. I had a ques. :-

 I have a sample xml file :-

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE start-ele [
   <!NOTATION MyFormat SYSTEM "MyFormatProcessor.exe">
   <!ENTITY MyEnt SYSTEM "MyFormatData.txt" NDATA MyFormat>
   <!ELEMENT start-ele EMPTY>
   <!ATTLIST attr-for-notation ENTITY #REQUIRED>
<start-ele attr-for-notation=MyEnt />

When a VALIDATING xml processor will start processing the above, will it
only pass

* Notation name (MyFormat in above case)
* Notation System Identifier (MyFormatProcessor.exe)
* Entity systm. identifier (MyFormatData.txt)

to the application (on behalf of which the xml processor is validating) , or
is it also expected to pass the non XML data file(MyFormatData.txt) to it's
related process (MyFormatProcessor.exe) and initiate the processing?

Thanks in advance,
