[jdom-interest] DTD problem

I am having a weird problem reading in a very simple xml file with a very
basic dtd using a SAXBuilder (validation on, default Xerces parser).

The error message I get is the following:

org.jdom.JDOMException: Document root element "skyscout", must match DOCTYPE
root "skyscout".: Error on line 3 of document
http://localhost:7700/test.xml: Document root element "skyscout", must match
DOCTYPE root "skyscout".

It's being generated by SAXBuilder.java (line 310).

When I use the DOMBuilder, there are no problems.

Here is the content of the test.xml file:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<!DOCTYPE skyscout SYSTEM "http://localhost:7700/test.dtd">


<folder id="MySkyScout">


<title>My SkyScout</title>



and the test.dtd contains:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<!ELEMENT skyscout (folder+)>

<!ELEMENT folder (#PCDATA)>

Thanks in advance for any help,
