/**
 * Receive notification of basic DTD-related events.
 *
 * If a SAX application needs information about notations and
 * unparsed entities, then the application implements this interface
 * and registers an instance with the SAX parser using the parser's
 * setDTDHandler method. The parser uses the instance to report
 * notation and unparsed entity declarations to the application.
 *
 * Note that this interface includes only those DTD events that the
 * XML recommendation requires processors to report: notation and
 * unparsed entity declarations.
 *
 * The SAX parser may report these events in any order, regardless
 * of the order in which the notations and unparsed entities were
 * declared; however, all DTD events must be reported after the
 * document handler's startDocument event, and before the first
 * startElement event. (If the LexicalHandler is used, these events
 * must also be reported before the endDTD event.)
