When I view http://www.bath.ac.uk/%7Epy8ieh/internet/projects/mozilla/xml-doctype.xml ...I get the following message from the XML parser: XML Parsing Error: Error in processing external entity reference Line Number 1, Column 101: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 \ Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/strict.dtd"> The DOCTYPE declaration comes straight from the XHTML spec. I assume it is correct, but it may not be -- I know very little about XML so far... :-(
I think this is a dup of bug 11948, which was resolved as a dup of a Necko bug, but I think should have been made a dependency instead. The behavior has been changing over time (it used to crash rather than give the error message).
Ok; marking as dependency to necko bug 10456.
The following was written on bug 10456 (where nisheeth was not on the cc: list): |------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 09/29/99 12:53 ------- |Why is the XML handling of DTD files any different than that of HTML for linked |scripts and style sheets? | |In HTML, these linked files are downloaded asynchronously (but with the parser |blocked) to allow UI feedback. If the XML parser did a blocking read on the UI |thread *all user feedback would stop*. | |Nisheeth, can XML handle its DTD files the same way that <SCRIPT SRC=foo.js> is |done by HTML? I think that this is the right solution... This makes me think this is not really dependant on that bug. Raising priority to blocker since bug 10456 was raised to blocker because of this bug.

Is this a dup of #10456 or is it dependent on #10456?
Whiteboard: 10/14: Requesting clarification before verification as dup
I've retitled bug 10456. I think we can go ahead and verify this bug.
Ok, verifying bug dup of #10456
