I was actually trying to use the catalog file, by defaulting to a DTD that defines the entity. my goal is to successfully parse the file: <x> &message; </x> I want to define the entity 'message' in a local DTD, and use a local catalog file to point to this DTD. I was following the details at, http://xerces.apache.org/xerces2-j/faq-xcatalogs.html for using it in Xerces-J. I think, we can define the catalog file as: 1. OASIS XML catalog format, or 2. The catalog text format described by OASIS TR 9401 I found that OASIS TR 9401 format has a option to default to a DTD, in case <!DOCTYPE declaration is absent in the XML (I think it's the option DOCTYPE in OASIS TR 9401 format). But I found, that this option works in SGML systems, and not in XML (but I am not very sure). But after studying the OASIS XML catalog format, I couldn't find an option for this. Please do correct me, on any of the above points. -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
