Hey Folks,

Are there any SAX2 compliant parsers for JAXP out there that, when the validation feature is disabled , will not try to fetch the DTD specified in the DOCTYPE declaration of the document that it is parsing?

Fetching a DTD that you are not going to use is a huge waste, and the current release of Xerces does this. Is there a viable alternative out there, or do I have to strip the DOCTYPE element by hand before parsing?

Thanks loads,
