KGV uses SP, which (normally) supports URLs in system identifiers a la:

    <!DOCTYPE MyDocType
	SYSTEM "http://www.my.site/dtd/mydoc.dtd"
    >

or

    <!DOCTYPE MyDocType
	PUBLIC "-//me//DTD Mine//EN"
	"http://www.my.site/dtd/mydoc.dtd"
    >

but when I try this I get "URL not supported by this version".
(I presume that this refers to the URL storage manager in SP.)

I'm sure Gerald Oskoboiny would be happy to add
PUBLIC "-//www-html/DTD HTML Consensus Composite//EN"
to the KGV catalog if we asked nicely though...
