<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
          "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd" [
  <!ENTITY % sds-ent SYSTEM "http://www.podval.org/~sds/sds-ent.xml">
  %sds-ent;
]>

"%sds-ent;" is rendered as is instead of causing the file to be loaded.

also, the entities defined in the file sds-ent.xml and used in this page are not
displayed correctly.
The server returns a content-type of text/html for this document.  Why should it
be treated as an xml document?

When I save it as data.xml, the external entities are still not loaded, but the
%sds-ent; is also not shown...
As per bug 22942, *external* entities are not resolved by default, except if
the file is placed in the local directory "bin/dtd" ..

vrfy dupe of bug 22942 Load external DTDs (local and remote) if a pref is set

however, bz is correct that the testcase itself would be invalid because it 
fails to return the correct dtd.
