Re: Bug#91892: Small problem with Layout of pdf documentation
I do not see the exact problem on current installmanual in section 5.4
but see similar problem in appendix. (I remember seeing it a lot with
the old woody TEX before freeze.)
With the released woody version of TEX, run over of right margin by URL
is rare (mostly <example> section. I am limiting 72char/line for that
to avoid this.)
Problem in appendix is happening with TAGLIST's TAG. Somewhat similar
to Bug 61038.
<tag>Title of section
<tag><ref id="&long-url1;" name="long-name1">
<tag><ref id="&long-url2;" name="long-name2">
<tag><ref id="&long-url3;" name="long-name3">
For me, this can be easily fixed by avoiding this aggressive use of tag
list. I wonder following does better?
<sec?>Title of section
<item><ref id="&long-url1;" name="long-name1">
<item><ref id="&long-url2;" name="long-name2">
<item><ref id="&long-url3;" name="long-name3">
We may add <strong>...</> to emulate bold.
Can you confirm exact location of problem? There may be a way to fix
this without hacking with debiandoc-sgml which seem to work fine for me.
My "Debian Reference" has quite a bit of long URL.
TAG to me sounds like some short header thus may not need folding line
