[xep-support] DTD validation

Hi there,

I am using XEP as my engine to generate PDF. I encounter a problem
related to render an XML file with DTD.

The situation on my side is like the following:
I have a DTD and an XML file. There a doctype definition row in the XML
like the following:


I can edit this XML file in XMetaL. XMetaL tells me the XML file is OK
when I validate the XML file. From this point, I think the DTD and XML
are both correct.

I have an XSL for rendering the XML to PDF. When I try to use XEP 4.9
(JDK1.5) to render it to PDF. I got the following error.

[error] Error reported by XML parser; SystemID: file:/D:/XXXXXX.dtd;
Line#: 214; Column#: 27
[error] javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: Error reported by XML
error: formatting failed: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException:
SAXParseException: Not a name start character, U+23

The content at 214 is like the following:


The XML parser tells me the DTD is incorrect. I changed above line into
the following. The error disappears.


It seems the XML parser did not recognize #PCDATA. It still try to treat
it as an element.

Do you have any idea about this?

Thanks very much
