[moving this to the docbook-apps list] What you are seeing is actually a closed XML element: 2.1. <a href="#id2792719"/> ^ The trailing slash closes the empty element. This is perfectly valid XML, but HTML browsers don't understand it. This is one of the incompatibilities between XHTML and many current browsers. You may ask why the stylesheet doesn't output something like this instead: 2.1. <a href="#id2792719"></a> The stylesheet actually does specify a closing </a> tag in the template, but the processor converts it. The xsl:output method for XHTML is "xml", which means the XSLT processor decides how to output empty elements. -- Bob Stayton 400 Encinal Street Publications Architect Santa Cruz, CA 95060 Technical Publications voice: (831) 427-7796 The SCO Group fax: (831) 429-1887 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
