From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686; en-US; 0.8.1) Gecko/20010316 BuildID: Stable 0.8 build from cvs When an overlay is included in a file, that overlay should be able to read from the callers dtd entities if it cannot find a match for an entity in it's own dtd. I tried putting the dtd before and after the overlay, and it made no difference. Reproducible: Always

Is this standard XML behavior? For Hyatt - How important is this to you guys? Futuring for now.

While this isn't a blocker to what we are working on, this is a pain in the butt... I'm working on a calendar application. I've got 3 overlays: day, week and month view. The text for the items in these views is stored in calendar.dtd. I have to include that one file 4 times (main + 3 views) in order to get the text to every overlay. Now if the name changes, I've got to change it in three different spots. I've voted for this bug, I'd really like to see this enhancement.
Like Mike Potter I use overlays for my app and I would like to use the same overlay in different context. I'd like to be able to change the DTD just once in the master XUL file.
