Precisely.  I could analyze that that is what was wrong, but I have 
no guidance from the documentation on how to get my users running 
command-line scripts to turn off DTD validation but preserve the 
entity processing.  Hence my post to the list.

BTW, I've had no problems with Saxon performing the validation 
exactly as I need, but the old (ancient) version of 9SA that I have 
doesn't appear to return a non-zero return code on a validation 
error.  Reading the invocation arguments in the help provided when no 
arguments are supplied doesn't appear to offer any way to impact the 
return code.

Thanks for confirming my analysis of the situation.

My only issue is that I'm using all these tools from the command line 
and not from inside a program and so I am limited to what can be 
offered from and to a script.
