The dtdx plugin was started by extracting our
existing facility out of the core. It was only
intended to display our own document-v* DTDs.

It could be made more generic so that it can apply to
any source.

Yes it certainly can. Any plugin can provide its own
catalog and sets of resources. Only a couple of plugins
have been configured so far.

Also a project can provide its own catalog.

Back to the dtdx plugin. That sounds like a great idea
to use the catalog entity resolver to find the source.

This is a topic for the dev list, so continued there.

Add to input.xmap to look in the project's resources directory
and also look in the various plugin resources directories.
There are examples in the other sitemaps main/webapp/*
of looking for resources in various places. Patch please.

That would be another workaround though. The generator
should be able to use the catalog entity resolver.
