Subject comment-lines from html to xml to fo...
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2007 13:40:43 GMT

Can someone explain to me why I always get these '<!-- -->' strings 
times the number of meta-info in my original html-document???

I think this was asked before but I cannot find any point to start in 
the mailing-lists.

I start with a normal html-document which contains for several reasons 
some meta-information in its head like this

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<title>Some title...</title>
<meta content="TE" name="author">
<meta content="2.4.1" name="chapter">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../my.css" type="text/css">

I cannot remove these meta-lines since they are needed to pass extra 
info to forrest...
.xml from html-to-document.xsl will look like this:

<title>Some title...</title>
<!-- <meta name="author" content="TE"/> -->
<!-- <meta name="chapter" content="2.4.1"/> -->
<link type="text/css" href="../my.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

now .fo and hence .pdf will have this content:

<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
<fo:block id="N101B3" font-weight="bold" font-size="24pt" 
padding-after="24pt" padding-before="24pt">Some title...</fo:block>
<fo:block padding-after="18pt" padding-before="18pt" text-align="left">
  <!--  -->  <!--  -->
<fo:basic-link external-destination="../my.css" 
text-decoration="underline" color="#0F3660"/>
<fo:block width="7.5in" text-align="justify" space-before="5pt" 
space-after="5pt" font-weight="bold" font-size="14pt" 
font-family="serif">Table of contents</fo:block>

However "<!-- -->" is realy visible in the pdf and that is annoying.
How can I avoid that and force fo to strip those comment-sign.

I use 0.8dev, slightly modified with an own skin and xsl-files.

Thanks very much in advance
