[jdom-interest] Relative URI and Document URI

I'm reading in an XML file into a JDOM using Crimson and get the following

Root cause: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Relative URI
"I:\ApplicationXmlFiles\TempDTD.dtd"; can not be resolved without a document
	org.xml.sax.SAXException(java.lang.String, java.lang.Exception)
	org.xml.sax.SAXParseException(java.lang.String, org.xml.sax.Locator,

The top of the XML document looks like:

<!DOCTYPE application SYSTEM "I:\ApplicationXmlFiles\TempDTD.dtd">

I'm new to XML - please tell me 1) What's a document URI (as against a
relative URI which to me looks quite absolute in the above case) and 2) How
do I correct the problem!
