Re: DTD syntax checking

Bill Burns

Hi, Larry.

I seem to recall seeing this happen if I'm not using a project ion Oxygen and on initial creation of topics with a custom DTD. The error would go away once the topic is saved.

Hi Larry,

If you can provide us (support@...) with a sample XML document, DTD specialization plugin and steps to reproduce the problem I can try to look more into this.

Because right now I do not know how the DTD is mapped through the XML catalog, I do not know how the XML document refers to the DTD and what precise error you get when you attempt to validate the newly created XML document before saving it.

We've recently been alerted to an issue in our (mostly constrained) DTDs. If I set the catalog in Oxygen 20.1 to use the directory where I'm storing a working set, it will trip errors when I attempt to create certain topics (path scrubbed):

Could not resolve PublicID: [null] SystemID: [file:/.../com.dtd.test/dtd/technicalContent/dtd/ourReference.dtd]

I've been all through the catalogs and ent/mod files. I corrected a couple of issues, and that reduced but didn't eliminate the errors. Is there anything in Oxygen that can provide a more specific pointer to the problem? The "ourReference.dtd" is defined in the catalog, for example, so I don't know why it can't resolve the public ID.

Interestingly enough, the error occurs when creating a topic from templates we stored in Oxygen. BUT, if I save the created topic file and re-open it, no errors.
