XML Error - Whitespace Required between SystemID and PublicID

I receive an error in my XML parser (Oxygen XML) "Whitespace Required between SystemID and PublicID"

Here is the section:
<!DOCTYPE pam:message PUBLIC "-//PRISMstandard.org//DTD Aggregation with XHTML v1.0//EN">
<pam:message xmlns:pam="http://prismstandard.org/namespaces/pam/1.0/"
      xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"><?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

This is straight out of the documentation from the PRISM standard.  But, the whitespace problem seems to crop up on a lot of other posts generic to XML.  Any suggestions?  I've tried adding tabs, returns, spaces, etc.

sorry about the previous post, hit the send button to soon
it is a bit an awkward mesage Oxygen gives you,
but every DOCTYPE that has a PUBLIC ID
needs to have a SYSTEM identifier as well,
in case the mapping between the PUBLIC identifier and a fysical DTD doesn't work
<!DOCTYPE pam:message PUBLIC "-//PRISMstandard.org//DTD Aggregation with XHTML v1.0//EN" "prism.dtd">
should work
Oxygen will look for the prism.dtd if you didn't update the catalogue,
so you'd better make that a pointer to the real DTD
