I am currently using Saxon to perform transformations of SVG graphics. All of
the graphics contain a DOCTYPE reference to the W3C DTD: <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC
"-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd";>

A question has come up in our technical review team regarding the impact of
this reference. Is the DTD some how internalized in the transformation tools
in general and Saxon in particular or should we be establishing a local copy
of the DTD with the necessary DNS pointers and such? The trigger for our
concern was the following error message coming from a Saxon transformation:

java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 503 for URL:

Thanks in advance for any insight into what is really happening in the
background. Are we reading a DTD and if so, from where?
