Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Problem converting DB to PDF...

/ Dan York <dyork@e-smith.com> was heard to say:
| 1. Graphics do not appear in the PDF file. They are implemented as
| <mediaobject> in the DocBook file.

Yes, but what formats have you provided in the mediaobject? For PDF, I
think you have to supply PDF or PNG, EPS and GIF won't work.

| 2. More importantly, outside of the missing graphics, the PDF file
| looks fine for the first 19 pages, until it gets to Chapter 4. In 
| this chapter, I really just have the following construction:
|   <sect1>
|   <title></title>
|   <table>
|   ....
|   </table>
|   <table>
|   ....
|   </table>
|   </sect1>

Why not just make these two tables part of the preceding section?
(I don't understand the purpose of the section wrapper.)

| Any advice on the DocBook code - or suggestions of other programs
| to try - will be *greatly* appreciated!

Make sure you have the most recent JadeTeX. You might consider converting
your document to XML and trying PassiveTeX and/or FOP.

                                        Be seeing you,

Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | of the question may advance, they
                                   | cannot deny that they are always
                                   | surprised at hearing of a good
                                   | action and never of a bad
                                   | one.--Keats
