When my xml file references the DTD <BR>without the full path as in "at.dtd" and the dtd references the entities without <BR>the full path, the load method will actually load the document up. The problem <BR>is I only put them in the same directories to test this out, the DTD and entities <BR>really go in another directory. When I pull the XML file up directly through the <BR>browser it sees the DTD and entities fine so my paths are all correct. The <BR>problem only exists when I pull it up through the DOM Load method it won&#039;t get <BR>past the DTD. Any help would be appreciated.<BR>--tim<BR>
