errors with db2html or sgmltools --backend=html
I am trying to learn to write and format DocBook XML documents. I want to write
a programmers manual for ZooLib (http://zoolib.sourceforge.net/ So far I've
succeeded in creating a small docbook xml file that includes another file as an
entity, and in validating the file, but I can't create an HTML file from them
because I get a lot of errors.
I've been using psgml in emacs to create the files, and seem to have things
When I give either the commend "db2html test.xml" or "sgmltools --backend=html
test.xml" I get many errors like:
/usr/bin/jade:/usr/lib/sgml/entities/iso-amsr.ent:6:16:E: "X224A" is not a
and no html file is produced. Could I have something configured wrong or not
installed that I need?
Here is test.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//Norman Walsh//DTD DocBk XML V3.1.3//EN"
<!ENTITY mdc "Michael D. Crawford">
<!ENTITY chap1 SYSTEM "chap1.xml">
<title>My First Book"</title>
here is chap1.xml:
<chapter><title>The First Chapter</title>
<para>The first paragraph</para>
<para>The second paragraph</para>
sgml-parent-document: ("test.xml" "book" "chapter")
If I give the Emacs command M-x sgml-validate while in test.xml, it validates
Thanks for any help you can give me.
