netscap / IE external entities

Can someone give me the lowdown on the way these two browsers deal with
the following

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="datadump. css"?>
<!DOCTYPE datadump [
<!ENTITY sig SYSTEM "signature.xml" >
<!ENTITY txt "this is an entity">
<!ELEMENT datadump (name)>
<!ELEMENT name (first,last)>
<!ELEMENT first (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT last (signature)>
<!ELEMENT signature (#PCDATA)>
]>
<datadump>
<name>
<first>&txt;</first>
<last>&sig;</last>
</name>
</datadump>

In IE, without a style sheet, the document tree shows the signature
element within the last element. With a stylesheet, IE only displays
the signature content. Just by having an external entity, IE seems to
only display that content and nothing else.

In Netscape, without a stylesheet the document tree shows last as any
empty element.

In other words, in differing ways, neither is doing as I would expect,
insert the external entity where I want it while being styled according
to my specification.

xmlvalid says the xml is valid so I figure it is a difference in how the
browsers treat external entities.

Hi There, Can someone please tell me why the XML spec states that an attribute value with an external entity is forbidden? Or point me to the appropriate document? Or better still, perhaps you know of a work around? It is a little frustrating that the normally powerful external entities are limited in this fashion. Example (myextent.txt contains just one word without a CR):

Hi, The Xerces XML parser is reading external DTD references in DOCTYPEs by default, but is not doing anything with them because validation is turned off by default. This is documented in http://xml.apache.org/xerces2-j/features.html#nonvalidating.load-external-dtd This setting causes many XML instances with broken DTD references in the DOCTYPE to fail and adds some performance overhead. Is there anything good that comes from this...

Hi, I have a question about PHP5's DOM, but I found the docs on this section are either incomplete or incorrect (e.g. wrong return types for several functions). How can external entities, or entities in general, be added to a DOMDocument? (I'm not asking about adding entity references because DOMDocument->createEntityReference works like a charm.) I should probably state the details around the problem: I am working on

Hi, I got a strange behaviour (FF 3) of entities in my xml files. I have an element (see xml listing), where the attribute/content contains a latin1 entity (&ouml;), but FF throws an error (entity not defined). the only workaround for that is to define the entities directly in the local xml DTD anyone knows, how I can get the latin1 entities work in the external DTD? thanks in advance

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
