Hi all,

I've just come back to docbook after not using it for a while - the 
last time I used it was about 3 years ago using the then current rpms 
installed onto RedHat 5.2.

I'm now on Mandrake 7.2, and within a day or two will upgrade to 8.0.

My problem is that when I try to run one of my old documents through 
db2pdf I get shedloads of errors and a useless pdf file.

As far as I can tell, I've got the appropriate rpm's installed, but I 
don't know where to go from here.  I didn't understand the workings 
back in '99, I just used it.  I think it's got something to do with the 
first line.

Here's my first line as it is in the document, and the first few lines 
of errors.  The second set is what happened when I changed it to look 
the same as the one in Docbook:TDG.

I'm absolutely in favour of keeping character entity packages for XML and
SGML separate. 

I don't care much for disk space conservation, but I don't like to introduce
artificial dependencies. XML proccessing tools won't grok SDATA. And some
SGML processing tools don't grok hex numerical character references, and
besides need an SGML declaration for XML. So why make the release of one set
of features dependent on the other?

kind regards,
Peter Ring

BTW, there's a dirty trick for 'portable' character entity declarations at . I didn't
tell you.
