Exactly the same as what it would do if confronted by

 <!DOCTYPE myDoc SYSTEM "http://foo.bar.com/itsSoObvious">

if it had no way of resolving an http URI to an actual
resouce: report an error.

Given that not many XML processors have URN resolution 
support at the mo', I guess this means the combination of 
URNs for DTDs + validation isn't a very good idea (yet).

Cheers,


Miles
