The syntax in the specification is defined to be - ExternalID ::= 'SYSTEM' S SystemLiteral | 'PUBLIC' S PubidLiteral S SystemLiteral So, in <!DOCTYPE name PUBLIC "fileName.dtd" "http://" > fileName.dtd is in the position for the public ID (PubidLiteral), but it's not a public ID namewise. The second 'argument' should be the dtd name. So, I think this one is wrong. Have a lovely weekend, Dan
