Hi !

I started with XML a day back. I am trying to run the following sample xml file along with the dtd document. Both the files are in the same folder.

Here is the code for sonnet.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE sonnet SYSTEM "sonnet.dtd"> <sonnet type="Shakespearean"> <author> <last-name>Shakespeare</last-name> <first-name>William</first-name> <nationality>British</nationality> <year-of-birth>1564</year-of-birth> <year-of-death>1616</year-of-death> </author>

<title>Sonnet 130</title>

<text> <line>My mistress eyes are nothing like sun,</line> <line>Coral is far from red than her lips.</line> <line>If snow...</line> <line> If hairs be wire,..</line> <line>I have seen </line> <line>But no such roses</line> <line>And in some</line> <line>Than in the</line> </text> </sonnet>

Following is the code for sonnet.dtd

<! ELEMENT sonnet (author, title?,text) > <! ATTLIST sonnet type (Shakespearean | Petrarchan) "Shakespearen")>

<! ELEMENT text(line, line, line, line, line, line, line, line) >

<! ELEMENT author (last-name, first-name, nationality, year-of-birth?, year-of-death?) >

<! ELEMENT title (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT last-name (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT first-name (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT national (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT year-of-birth (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT year-of-death (#PCDATA)> <! ELEMENT line (#PCDATA)>

When I try to run sonnet.xml using IE version 5.0 browser it gives me the following error :

The system cannot locate the resource specified. Error processing resource 'sonnet.dtd'. Line 2, Position 38

<!DOCTYPE sonnet SYSTEM "sonnet.dtd">

I would appreciate your help and responses.
