Subject: Re: HTML default appearance with DocBook 4.1 --- "improvement"???

/ Jorge Godoy <godoy@conectiva.com> was heard to say:
| (questions related to articles written with DocBook 4.1 and processed
|  with Jade and Norm's DSSSL stylesheet 1.54 --- with and without
|  specifying a class for articles)
| With DocBook 3.1 I get a title and a block with people addresses and
| e-mails. With DocBook 4.1, I get a paragraph (<p>) with the title, in
| red, and another paragraph with people author names. Is this the new
| expected behaviour for the 4.1 version of DocBook???

No, I think this is fixed. The DSSSL stylesheets didn't understand

| The last thing, with my first experiences with 4.1, is that it's
| definind fonts to be used. I think that this should be left to CSS
| stylesheets or any other postprocessing tool. I had to duplicate many
| of my CSS declarations just to override the <font> HTML element...

The <font> element is only output when the stylesheet encounters
a tag that isn't mapped. It indicates a stylesheet error.

                                        Be seeing you,
