Before digging deeper into the code, please double-check that the

1.5.  Using < 1.5 versions results in the behaviour you described above.

Thanks for the reply, I can confirm that the version I am using is 1.5

When the command is issued, the @cmd array contains:
/usr/local/bin/onsgmls -c
/home/web/validator/htdocs/sgml-lib/sgml.soc -E0 -R -wvalid -wnon-sgml-char-
ref -wno-duplicate

Issuing '/usr/local/bin/onsgmls --version' gives :
/usr/local/bin/onsgmls:I: "OpenSP" version "1.5"

Hope this helps.
