Issue #123 resolved
Marisa Strong created an issue

Tried to run a checksum on the jhove2-2.0.0.zip distribution file but JHOVE2 just hangs and doesn't return to the command line.

    This is caused by the latency of going to the W3C web site for the HTML dtd's when validating all the Javadocs and other sample sgml files in the distribution.

    This delay can be removed by keeping a local copy of the dtds on the user machine, and by updating the catalog file specified in the Spring configuration file for the SGML module () to point to these local copies of the HTML dtds.

    The attached zip file contains the dtds for HTML 3.2, 4.0, and 4.0.1 -- and sample unix and windows catalog file entries to point to these loca dtds

    We should post this zip file to the wiki, and add an FAQ entry pointing the zip file, and update the user guide to point to the files as well.
