[jdom-interest] Dynamic DTD

I saw a couple of posts in the archives, but none of them answered my 
question quite right.

Is there a way for me to get an XML document and *dynamically* apply a DTD 
to it?

I am building an app that gets a message response from a queue.  The 
response is in XML.  I'd like to dynamically apply a DTD to it if I can.

If I can't, not a huge deal, but it would be very helpful to me.

Also, it seems that absolute references don't work so well to DTDs.  When I 
would specify it as something like "c:\app\xml\temp.dtd", the parser would 
choke on it, but "\app\xml\temp.dtd" was ok.  I found some posts on this, 
but still don't really understand why this is ...

Any help on the above 2 q's?
