RE: URNs in SYSTEM declarations

If you're working in java you could put together a URN protocol handler, in which case a java.net.URLConnection would be able to do the resolution. Most java parsers will, by default, use a URLConnection to fetch the external subset, so that should do the trick. Alternatively, if you're using SAX, or a SAX-like API you could put together a custom EntityResolver. > Does a lack of support for URNs in any way affect XML > conformance? Well, if the parser claims to be validating, *and* doesn't have URN resolution support, then it wouldn't be conformant if it didn't report a fatal error. By the sound of it, the parser you're using was doing the Right Thing.
