I've tried to run your example, but I see this error
/usr/home/rptlab/tmp/newsletter.dtd: No such file or directory
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "pyrxp-bad.py", line 6, in <module>
parsed = p.parse(infile)
pyRXP.error: Error: Couldn't open dtd entity
in unnamed entity at line 7 char 3 of [unknown]
Couldn't open dtd entity file:///usr/home/rptlab/tmp/newsletter.dtd
