           Summary: Create a PUBLIC identifier for the log4j DTD
           Product: Log4j
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: log4j-dev@logging.apache.org
        ReportedBy: paul4christ79@yahoo.com


With a SYSTEM identifier, the DTD cannot be used for IDE auto-completion unless
the file is physically sitting in the webapp root. If a PUBLIC identifier was
given, then IDEs could retrieve the DTD from the jar library through the
classpath. I am using XML for configuration.

Proposal:
<!DOCTYPE log4j PUBLIC "-//LOG4J//DTD LOG4J//EN"
"http://logging.apache.org/dtd/log4j-1.2.dtd">

Notice I added a "-1.2" suffix to the filename to indicate the DTD belongs to
the 1.2.x branch. This will help moving to 1.3 when a 1.3 DTD becomes available.
Also, because the filename is different, this shouldn't affect any current users
when packaging both the historical SYSTEM and new PUBLIC versions in one libary.
