If what you want is validation the SAX parser in MSXML should be able to validate those without problems.

	No.
	
	Here is an example of an XML document (one that I might add conforms to a
	new international standard for medical guidelines issued by ASTM E31.28.
	
	http://www.openhealth.org/ASTM/UTI-guideline.xml
	
	This chokes my version of IE (5.5) loaded with MSXML 4.
	
	Note that if you removed the comments around the <!DOCTYPE ..> line in
	
	http://www.openhealth.org/ASTM/operative.report.example.xml
	
	the same problem occurs (this document also conforms to an international
	standard, BTW)
	
	MSXML seems unable to process DTDs that use lots of parameter entities such
	as those of W3C XHTML. I've been mentioning this for years but no one seems
	to care. shrug.
