The same > way as the SGML_CATALOG_FILES environment varaiable to sp. You can have a catalog if you want; that's outside of the scope of XML per se. But any entity you want to use (other than the five pre-defined ones) must be declared within the document, and all external entity declarations must have system identifiers. They can have public identifiers *in addition*, and a processor may use the public identifier instead of the system identifier, but you must still give a system identifier. -Chris -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
