Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: PassiveTeX Howto?


I've got some docbook files that I'd like to convert to pdf.
I'm playing with the XSL stylesheets.

I've had some success (I can at least make a pdf file) with FOP,
and would like to compare with PassiveTex before I start customizing.
However, I haven't had the least success with the PassiveTeX.

When trying to process a simple document, I get a Fatal error.

I am using: 

   xalan test.dkb $XSLDIR/fo/docbook.xsl test.fo

followed by:

   pdfxmltex test.fo

The TeX is from SuSE Linux 7.2 (with the xmltex and passivetex rpm's 
from 7.3). Xalan is 2.2.0.

Thanks for any help,

following is the tail of pdfxmltex's logfile:

Start page sequence, using layout , at page 1
Master : no first page, use odd page
 first page master is [\Odd: ]
 odd page master is [\Odd: ]
 even page master is [\Odd: ]
 blank page master is [\Odd: ]
! Missing \endcsname inserted.

Runaway argument?

End of file on the terminal!

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
