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

I agree with Bob, and I would also suggest that you ditch 
the "colname" attributes on the <entry>s. 

Here's what the tdg has to say about the colname attribute:

- Entrys cannot be given out of order, the column referenced must 
- be to the right of the last Entry or EntryTbl placed in the current row. 

I don't really understand what this attribute is for, but your table renders fine without them.

I used the customization layer below, which calls xtchunk.xsl (I'm using xt) and defines a css stylesheet named style.css. Just call chunk.xsl if not using xt.

In style.css, put a line like this: 

  div.table td  { font-family: "Futura Book"; font-size: 80%; }

(but don't expect to see the effect on Netscape 4.x on Linux.)

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

  <xsl:import href="/usr/lib/sgml/stylesheet/xsl/docbook/nwalsh/html/xtchunk.xsl"/>

  <xsl:param name="html.stylesheet" select="'style.css'"/>


Hope that helps,
