SAX newbie Q : absolute DTD path in system id

I'm playing with the Quick Start for SAX example (using XP).  I find that
unless my DTD declaration is relative to my XML file, I get an error when
the app looks for the DTD.  It tacks the DTD system id onto the local
document path.

Is there an easy way to tell the parser that the DTD system id is absolute,
or do I have to write my own resolver?
