Subject RE: Using Docbook
Date Thu, 01 Jun 2006 16:30:02 GMT
As an interim solution, I replaced htmltodocument.xsl with
html2htmlbody.xsl and used the HTML serializer.
It fixed the doubling problem and keeps most of the skinning.

It does look like the span match in html2document has a hard time with
<span class=...>. The stylesheet looks like it is just duplicating
anything that is inside of it. I'm loathe to modify this stylesheet
because it is part of the Forrest core stuff.

I am working on a stylesheet that can strip out the offending HTML tags
in the HTML generated by the Docbook stylesheets though.

Cheers,
Eric
