Hi there,

I have the files:

filename: character_entities.dtd
<!ENTITY Aacute "&#193;" >
<!ENTITY Acirc  "&#194;" >
<!ENTITY Auml   "&#196;" >

filename: events.sgml
<chronevent ...>...</chronevent>
<chronevent ...>...</chronevent>
<chronevent ...>...</chronevent>

filename: wrap_events.xml
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>
<?xml-stylesheet type='text/xsl' href='render_events.xsl'?>

    <!ENTITY % character_entities SYSTEM "character_entities.dtd">
    <!ENTITY events SYSTEM "events.sgml">


filename: render_events.xsl
<xsl:transform version='1.0'

    <xsl:template match='/'>


IE 5.5 + MSXSL 3.0 accepts a double-click on "wrap_events.xml", performs
the transform, and of course, produces squat for output, but it doesn't
error.  However, when I run

java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet -a wrap_events.xml > output.html

I get the error

Failed while looking for xml-stylesheet PI
expected markup declaration
At line 8 in file:/.../wrap_events.xml
TRaX Transform Exception

I have also tried

java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet wrap_events.xml render_events.xsl >

which gives the error

Fatal error reported by XML parser: expected markup declaration
  URL:    file:/.../wrap_events.xml
  Line:   8
  Column: 8
  expected markup declaration
Transformation failed

I don't understand what I am doing incorrectly.  Haven't I provided a
markup declaration as part of wrap_events.xml?

Thank you for your time,
Dave Gomboc
