That is brilliant Dims. I removed our old test catalog
support, did cvs checkout 2.1-dev of your new stuff, and
added a properties file. Everything works as expected. Great.

It does not matter now, but the catalog classes that we had
used for the proposal were also Sun's by Norm Walsh which
he made available via Arbortext. (We were not doing anything
special - just hooking the classes up to the parser's entity
resolver via and

The new SUN classes would have evolved from those. These are
current and form a better base. The way that you have
implemented it is also far better than our original proposal.
Well done. (Where do you get the time :-)

I will separately send the sample catalog demo that i had
prepared for our original proposal, together with our initial
properties file, a default catalog, and a default set of ISO
character entity sets. I will then re-work our proposal
documentation catalog.xml to become the user doco.

We can now build upon your solid base. I will follow up
separately with a couple of issues, e.g default config.

many thanks, David Crossley
