You da man!  I just got this working by rebuilding the PassiveTeX RPM
that comes with Red Hat with the new files included.  

Finally I can see the results of the new stylesheets.  The PDF output
from FO is looking better and better!

I take that Sebastian will add this to the "official" PassiveTeX zip
in due course?  I just checked the passivetex.zip on the PassiveTeX
website, and it's still at version 1.18 (with no fixes)

Cheers, Alex

PS. Is there any way I can subscribe to the list, so that I am listed
as a subscriber, but turn off actual delivery of the messages?  You
can do this with Mailman-run mailing lists.  The reason I ask is
because I follow the mailing list via the mailing-list to news server
gateway "news.gmane.org", which saves me the bandwidth and disk space
of receiving the messages via mail, but I was hoping to not waste
folks time with having to manually approve my posts.
