    XML import issue: PUBLIC IDs are not supported.

    rsandilands1

      I'm trying to work with an xml file in InDesign CS5.5 but when importing the file, I receive the error:

       

      "PUBLIC IDs are not supported. The external entity 'ISO8879:1986//ENTITIES Added Math Symbols: Arrow Relations//EN//XML' cannot be found. Continue to import anyway"

       

      Now I notice the realted DTD contains numerous lines such as:

       

       

      <!ENTITY % isoamsa.ent PUBLIC "ISO 8879:1986//ENTITIES Added Math Symbols: Arrow Relations//EN//XML"
      "isoamsa.ent">
      
      %isoamsa.ent;
      <!ENTITY % isoamsb.ent PUBLIC "ISO 8879:1986//ENTITIES Added Math Symbols: Binary Operators//EN//XML"
      "isoamsb.ent">
      
      %isoamsb.ent;
      <!ENTITY % isoamsc.ent PUBLIC "ISO 8879:1986//ENTITIES Added Math Symbols: Delimiters//EN//XML"
      "isoamsc.ent">
      
      %isoamsc.ent;
      
      

       

      and that there's corresponding ent files in the same sub-directory as the dtd file. That is, I can see the ent files that the xml import process can't find.

       

      Is this just an issue of incorrect paths? How best to resolve this issue?
