Sounds good :)

Unfortunatly it's not really simple to fix this: it's auto-generated by 
moinmoins docbook export module (so the source for itil.xml is a wiki), and 
this module is currently not maintained upstream in moinmoin. (See the 
moinmoin wiki for more info if you interested.)

/me looks at 
and cheers!

/me nods, just experienced this :(

I guess I will have to switch to openjade then and set the errorlimit to 
10000, like I already do for the html version...

And the long term solution is to fix moinmoins docbook export.

regards & thanks anyway,
