Re: Including other DTDs

That's completely bogus -- you can't shove an html document (which is
indeed what's at the end of that URL) in to an element declaration.
If the reference was all on its own on a line, _and_ the URL was
corrected, then it would be fine:

<!ENTITY % VHG SYSTEM "http://www.vhg.org.uk/dtd/vhg.dtd">

That's the proper way to compose DTD documents, _if_ they are designed
for it.
