Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Unexpected HTML output using customization of HTMLDocBook styles heet

The basic problem is that you have superceded a more
complex template with your simple template.  The Docbook
XSL file "html/table.xsl" defines templates for <entry>

<xsl:template match="thead/row/entry">

and these go on to handle the various attributes,
output the HTML <TD> tags, and perform
various other table cell processing.
The precedent rules for templates say that a more
specific template has greater precedence than
a more general template.  Since your template
is an exact match for <entry>, it wins.
Your new template for "entry" doesn't add to
the former processing of <entry>, it replaces it.
So you get no <TD> markup and only Futura.

Offhand, I don't see an easy way to add your
customization to the Docbook XSL table processing
(someone else might, though).  I would instead
go for a CSS stylesheet for the HTML <TD>
element rather than the <FONT> tag.
