The bugzilla entry and this discussion:
indicate that this is now fixed in xerces cvs.

I tried the solution they suggested as a workaround for 2.6 with no luck 
(though it may be that I don't know my way around XNI).

So, do we
1) Ignore the bug until a later version of xerces is released?  (the bug 
is that the build fails without an internet connection due to the dtd 
resolving in web.xml)
2) Roll back to 2.5? (I assume this would unfix other bugs?)
3) Use a dated version of xerces from cvs until their next release.
