Thereafter, JAXP has evolved to an extent, where now it supports a lot more things (like validation against schema while parsing, validation against preparsed schema, evaluating XPath expressions, etc.,) than only parsing an XML document.
So, JAXP is a lightweight API to process XML documents by being agnostic of the underlying XML processor, which are pluggable.

Therefore, the JAXP 1.1 Expert Group (EG) introduced a set of APIs called Transformation API for XML (Tr AX) in JAXP 1.1, and since then, JAXP is called Java API for XML Processing.

If you cannot change the document to reference the DTD (HTML, likely) I'm afraid your hack is the only way to go.
The following guide provides concise information to prevent this vulnerability.
