One more thing: XML *requires* a system identifier.  So, this line needs to

You can also use a local URI if you haven't configured a catalog yet.

(This is where the error message is coming from.  The parser just sees that
the character immediately following the public identifier is not
white-space, so spits out this message.  It would be nice if the message
were "missing system identifier" instead.)
