Re: Entities and Expat
Thanks much for the clarification.  Obviously, i need to go back to the
remedial XML syntax class, since i was forgetting to wrap the "<!ENTITY..>"
declarations within a "<!DOCTYPE..".

Unfortunately, i'm being given legacy documents that are "semi-well-formed"
XML.  My indexer program does have an input file list, so i'll just ensure
that the "<!DOCTYPE.." and "<!ENTITY..>" declarations and the root element
start-tag are included in the first input file, and the root element end-tag
is the last input file, with the untranslated content file(s) in between
these wrapper files.

I suppose an external DTD would be the preferred alternative, but i'm trying
to avoid DTDs, for now (or at least until i pass that remedial class).
