We are aware of the issue.  On the other hand, the validator should
work with relative sysids if there is indeed a copy of DTD on that
location, at least when validating by URI rather than file upload.

BTW, it seems there's a bug on file upload:


Actually this is not Amaya's problem, but the validator is doing
something wrong if there is an XML declaration.
