The use of imagedata like this was a kludge that simply hacked an available attribute to make the trick work. The text inclusion mechanism itself doesn't preserve white space in the output. You have to wrap it in a programlisting or literallayout to indicate presentation. If you are using DTD version 4.2, you can use textobject instead, and it doesn't mention linespecific. But you still have to put it in a container. See: http://www.sagehill.net/xml/docbookxsl/SolveProblems.html#ExternalCode for more information on both ways of doing it. -- 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: email@example.com
