I don't know if it is a type in your mail, but the correct attributes of
the doctype node are "systemId" and "publicId", not
"systemID" and "publicID"

Anyway, the problem is that most parsers don't take the time to
correctly initialize the doctype node of the DOM tree, since only a few
people would use it. Bad luck for you, you are in this case... ;)

I think that the xmlproc parser handles this correctly.
