on Redhat-9 I've installed OpenSP-1.5 and I then try this:

cat test.html | /usr/local/bin/onsgmls -c 
/home/apache/htdocs/validator/sgml-lib/xml.soc -E0 -R -wvalid 
-wnon-sgml-char-ref -wno-duplicate -wxml

and I get:

/usr/local/bin/onsgmls:E: cannot find 
"/home/apache/htdocs/validator/sgml-lib/xml.soc"; tried
/usr/local/bin/onsgmls:<OSFD>0:3:83:E: URL not supported by this version
/usr/local/bin/onsgmls:<OSFD>0:3:83:E: DTD did not contain element 
declaration for document type name

and another 25 or so lines of similar errors...

Yes, the file at /home/apache/htdocs/validator/sgml-lib/xml.soc exists, 
and it's readable. I've tried many variations on this command, and I've 
tried compiling OpenSP-1.5 with gcc 3.2.3 and with gcc 2.96 and I'm 
still stuck.

I've done the  OpenSP-1.5 install before on Redhat-7 with no problem at 
all, which makes this even more frustrating!

And what parameters would be passed in to compile it with XML messages off?

Thanks...
