It's supported external general entities for a long time. The current test version (at ftp://ftp.jclark.com/pub/test/expat.zip) also support external parameter entities including the DTD subset; this is the version being used in Perl or Mozilla, so it's actually fairly solid. > and isn't validating This is true.
