>>Subject:       Syntax error in DTD
>>
>>Hi All,
>>Following the LOC's instructions for implementing EAD, I downloaded the
>>specific files and placed them in the same directory as my first
>>EAD-tagged file. When Netscape invokes Panorama Pro and tries to display
>>the .sgm file properly, the parser immediately gives me 2 sequential error
>>messages each time:
>>
>>1)the first is that there is a syntax error within the file ead.dtd. The
>>parser indicated the syntax error is in the first line of the
>>file, and indicates it is between the first two strings, <!DOCTYPE [cursor
>>goes here] ead
>>
>>2)the second message says the viewer failed to locate the URL's for two
>>files: "entityrc" and "catalog". I am suspecting that this error is a
>>direct result of it not reading the dtd properly.
>>
>>The file, if anyone is interested, may be found at
>>http://seal.lib.lsu.edu/~chuck/ead/unclesam.sgm
>>
>>Any advice is appreciated.
>>Sincerely,
>>Chuck Thomas
