Entity References (trivial question)

I have a (hopefully) trivial question.

I am trying to use entity references to abstract my documents from their
storage locations as follows:

<!ENTITY % DocumentBase SYSTEM "../">
<!ENTITY % DtdBase SYSTEM "%DocumentBase;config/">
<!ENTITY % SpecificDocumentType SYSTEM


The XML is:
<!DOCTYPE specific_document_type SYSTEM


When I run the parser (the Java version of MSXML) from
D:\Development\xml\doc, I get the following error:

Error opening input stream for
Location: Parsing(0,0)
Context: <null>

Would someone please help me spot my (probably stupid) mistake?
