SAX newbie Q : absolute DTD path in system id

My original question was a little confusing, so I'm posting a clarification
I sent to Bill:
Yes, the DTD exists in the directory specified by an absolute path such as:
<!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "c:\xml\dtd\foo.dtd">
but if the XML file with the above reference is in c:\xml\files\, I get a
"FileNotFoundException: c:\xml\files\c:\xml\dtd\foo.dtd" when I attempt to
execute "java SAXApp file:///C:/xml/files/foo.xml"
if I change the DOCTYPE reference to:
<!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "foo.dtd">
it finds the DTD and the document is parsed. It's like the application is
hardwired to assume the system id is a relative path. I'd like to know how
to make my SAX/XP app accept an absolute DTD path.
