Package: docbook-to-man
Version: 1:2.0.0-9
Severity: normal

When . or ' is the first PCDATA character on a line in the SGML source
(i.e. there may be markup in front of it), then the whole line
disappears from the output manpage.

Example SGML:

<!doctype refentry PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V4.1//EN">
      'this whole stuff is swallowed
      <emphasis>.same</emphasis> for this - just need ' or . at line start

Generated output:

()                                                             ()

       foo -- bar

       Blah foo bar

Hash: SHA1

You should invoke docbook-to-man with INSTANT_OPT set to a space if you
want to use some special characters literally in your SGML file. This also
takes care of collapsing white space into one space.

INSTANT_OPT=" " docbook-to-man src.sgml > dst.1

Kind regards


PS: Maybe I should emphasize it more in the manpage?
