I scanned though quite a lot of xml/dtd/tld in 4.1.12, hoping to get 
that elusive 1 EUR.
Not such luck. The only thing that I can come up with is:

the TLDs are referring an DTD that has been moved by Sun. Here's what 
you get when you go to

"The file named
has been renamed to
in the most current version of the specification.
Please update your application to use the new name."

Thus, if the parser has been set to be validating, it would fail 
(albeit with a different error). Maybe updating the DOCTYPE in the TLDs 
should help?
