XT is _OLD_. And has a number of known non-compliances.

Regarding XSLT, yes, which is why I'm switching processors to get key() ... I am unaware of any faults regarding XML processing in XT.

Your belief about
your XML being properly constructed is incorrect.

I respectfully disagree.

You don't mention which XML processor you are using, but the error message refers to a "marked section in the internal DTD subset" when, in fact, I have the marked section in an external DTD subset. The processor is either giving bogus error messages, or whoever implemented it doesn't know the terminology.

This has nothing to do with the XSLT processor

Every XSLT processor has an embedded XML processor and the result in this case is the well-formed stylesheet is being rejected.

(the above 'xmlparse' is
nothing but a fully validating XML parser with good error reporting).

I disagree ... whichever processor you are using is giving you a false sense of security ... it doesn't work.

XML is simply invalid

Can you quote chapter and verse from the XML Recommendation to back up your argument rather than relying on faulty software? I will gladly respect a corrected interpretation of the XML Recommendation if you can prove I am wrong.

I hope you find this helpful.
