[xep-support] XML catalogs in XEP

sorry to take up a rather old message that I asked previously for
using (at that time) SGML catalogs with XEP. Having fully switched
to XML now, I wonder how to tell XEP to use my catalog system with
the root catalog in /etc/xml/catalog.xml (on a Debian system).

I did read the XEP user guide section about resolution of external
entities, but did not quite grasp how you'd use it to specify a local
catalog file. And the in-depth link to Sun's site is outdated.

So thanks for any help and assistance.


(also, for verification purposes, is there a kind of "--nonet" switch
 like eg xsltproc has to verify that I am really only using local
 files and no stuff from the net ?)
