[jdom-interest] DOCTYPE still giving me the worst headache!

I just downloaded the latest source code from CVS to look at fixing 
the DocType class to distinguish between no PUBLIC ID/System ID and 
an empty string public ID/System ID.

Before I made any changes, I built it all and ran the test suite. 
Every single test failed. Is this normal? What's the status of the 
test suite? Is it in sync with the current code? A few tests I could 
see why they failed. They were for XPath functionality in 1.1 I 
didn't install. However, most of them failed for no apparent and did 
not produce any helpful error messages indicating why the test failed.

Ideas? I don't want to start hacking on the code until I can make 
sure I can run the test suite.
