Validation failing using cXML

I get his error: "The parameter entity replacement text must nest properly within markup declarations. An error occurred at file:///T:/Clients/L_c/Lone Star Supplies/Invoicer/Invoicer/bin/InvoiceDetail.dtd, (3929, 79)."

 the XML doc: http://qdataviewer.com/downloads/Invoice2.xml

 the dtd doc: http://qdataviewer.com/downloads/InvoiceDetail.dtd

Below is my code:
 
        Dim source As String = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory & "invoice2.xml"
        Dim XMLDoc2 As Xml.XmlTextReader
        Dim xr As Xml.XmlValidatingReader
        XMLDoc2 = New Xml.XmlTextReader(source)
        xr = New Xml.XmlValidatingReader(XMLDoc2)
        xr.ValidationType = Xml.ValidationType.DTD

        Try
            While xr.Read()
                Debug.Write(i)
                i = i + 1
            End While
            xr.Close()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

Hi cpv_flex,

there is nothing wrong with the DTD
apart from an attribute "property" that doesn't get a correct value, the DTD is valid and the XML is valid according to the DTD

I would change line 3929 like this though
<!ELEMENT ds:Object (#PCDATA | ds:Signature | ds:SignatureProperties | ds:Manifest | %Object.ANY;)* >
a bar added and spaces added

and change line 3830 like this
<!ENTITY % Object.ANY ' xades:QualifyingProperties | cXMLSignedInfo '>
bar removed and spaces added

Cheers!

Gertone,

I don't want to change the DTD becuase it is an industry standard, but I'll just ingore the message I was getting.

Thanks.
