Description Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2015-01-19 15:45:57 UTC
XmlFilterReader (used by Document) only checks for XmlTextReader.ProhibitDtd and not XmlTextReader.DtdProcessing. ProhibitedDtd has been obsoleted in favor of DtdProcessing. Setting XmlTextReader.DtdProcessing to DtdProcessing.Ignore results in an exception when a DTD is encountered:

	var reader = new XmlTextReader (stream) {
	DtdProcessing = DtdProcessing.Ignore
	XDocument.Load (reader);

System.Exception: Invalid platform ---> System.Xml.XmlException: Document Type Definition (DTD) is prohibited in this XML reader.

The following is used as a workaround just after instantiating the XmlTextReader to skip to the first element node:

	while (reader.Read () && reader.NodeType != XmlNodeType.Element);

The check should be corrected here to check for

Set XmlResolver = null to avoid DTD resolution so far.

We are now referencesource based so it should work too.
