[Bug 6468] New: Document Override to "SYSTEM" (non-"PUBLIC") DTD


           Summary: Document Override to "SYSTEM" (non-"PUBLIC") DTD
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.8.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: check

        ReportedBy: ubipetrus@earthlink.net

It seems to me that it could also be useful if the Document Override feature
could also be enabled for pointing to some external DTD on the Web which is not
among the "official" ones presently selectible, e. g. being able to specify a
Document Override to the DTD located at
"http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html3/html3.dtd" or any other present on the web.
The rest that would be needed in support of this appears to be already in place
since a document itself can specify (continuing this example) a DOCTYPE of
'<!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM "http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html3/html3.dtd">' and the
validator will already attempt to use the DTD at the specified location for
parsing the document.
