    Is a DOMString containing the PUBLIC identifier.
    systemId

    var dt = document.implementation.createDocumentType('svg:svg', '-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN', 'http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd');
    var d = document.implementation.createDocument('http://www.w3.org/2000/svg', 'svg:svg', dt);
