Well, any error could be why you are losing your headings.  Without more
details, I cannot say more than that.  I am assuming from the error message
that your file "I10n.xml" has a matching DTD "I10n.dtd".  In particular, you
probably have a DOCTYPE declaration that has the relative SYSTEM locator
"I10n.dtd".  That is do say, you probably have a relative path to your DTD,
rather than an absolute path.  Recently, there has been some confusion among
W3C participants, including parser developers, on whether relative paths should
start with something like "http:" or "file:" just like absolute paths do.  The
final answer seems to be "no", but nonetheless, there are still quite a few
packages out there now which want relative file paths to start with "file:". 
So try changing to path to your DTD from "I10n.dtd" to "file:I10n.dtd", and see
if that works.  If so, great.  If not, sorry, I can't say more unless you send
me the files (if so, send them directly to me, not to the list).
