Errr, we are not getting confused??
An example is:
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML v4.1.2//EN"
According to <URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>, the FROMAT IS
doctypedecl :: '<!DOCTYPE' S Name (S ExternalID)? S? [...]
ExternalID ::= [...] 'PUBLIC' S PubidLiteral S SystemLiteral
[...] = removed for clarity
S = Whitespace
SystemLiteral = "The SystemLiteral is called the entity's system
identifier. It is a URI reference (as defined in [IETF RFC 2396],
updated by [IETF RFC 2732]), meant to be dereferenced to obtain input
for the XML processor to construct the entity's replacement text."
Perhaps you were thinking of the PubidLiteral?
