i had exactly the same problem with rdfa parser from openrdf and DTD.

what you wanna do is :

1. create a catalog (catalog.xml and download all DTDs)
2. add file "CatalogManager.properties" to the classpath (in a maven project on netbeans you would simply put it in "other resources", so it gets jar'd)
3. modify the code so the xml reader uses that catalog.

my parser looks about so :

   CatalogResolver catRes
   Transformer transformer


   TransformerFactory transFact = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
   CatalogManager catMan = new CatalogManager("CatalogManager.properties");                  
   catRes = new CatalogResolver(catMan);                
   ClassLoader cl = RDFaParser.class.getClassLoader();                
   Templates cachedXSLT = transFact.newTemplates(new StreamSource(cl.getResourceAsStream(XSLT)));                
               transformer = cachedXSLT.newTransformer();

parserMethod (StreamSource source)

XMLReader reader = XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader();
          reader.setFeature("http://xml.org/sax/features/validation", Boolean.FALSE);                                  
          Source sXML=new SAXSource(reader, new InputSource(source.getInputStream()));                         
	  transformer.transform(sXML, new StreamResult(out));                                        

it took me some time to get this catalog thing up and running, here are some links, 

1. http://www.w3.org/blog/systeam/2008/02/08/w3c_s_excessive_dtd_traffic/  (see here for the overall trouble)
2. http://xml.apache.org/commons/components/resolver/resolver-article.html
3. http://nwalsh.com/docs/articles/xml2003/
4. http://xerces.apache.org/xerces2-j/faq-xcatalogs.html
5. http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/WriteCatalog.html
6. http://xml.apache.org/mirrors.cgi (download apache's resolver)

to save you some time :

1. find the catalog.xml and the catalog in use by WebIDRealm attached (copy the contents of catalog.zip to /usr/share/catalogs/ and make sure the files are readable)
   if you copy the contents elsewhere you need to change the path in CatalogManager.properties as well.
2. find the CatalogManager.properties in use by WebIDRealm attached

the basic workflow would :

1. CatalogManager reads CatalogManager.properties and finds path of catalog.xml
2. when resolving CatalogResolver looks in catalog.xml to see, if the docType (or module) is mapped there and tries to find the file in 
   path specified in the catalog.xml. 

if you have any questions regarding the catalog feel free to ask.

Thanks Damian,

  that was very helpful. 

I have now fixed a couple of issues on my side now, and I see that Jürgen has updated his xhtml even to be closer to xhtml. So the foafssl.org tester should work with that resource in any case.

Btw, I get the following in the logs

 INF: [console logger] dispatch: 2sea.org GET /sea.jsp HTTP/1.1
ERROR [pool-3-thread-5] (RDFDefaultErrorHandler.java:40) - http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/DTD/xhtml-rdfa-1.dtd(line 106 column 22): {E213} Unexpected end of file from server

It looks like the RDFa parser is following the DTDs. Is there a way to stop that? I guess the W3C does not serve those files.
