I suspect that the external source providing the data don't know what the
correct URL is, so they put in a dummy instead. You should negotiate agreement
on a PUBLIC identifier for the DTD, then each of you are able to resolve the
identifier as appropriate on your own network. The file might begin more like:
<!DOCTYPE eventfile PUBLIC "-//Digital//DTD for filing events//EN"
If you care about locations but don't necessarily know what they are, PUBLIC
provides a nice layer of abstraction.
