/ Gisbert Amm <gia@webde-ag.de> was heard to say:
|> Hello,
|> Tiny question: When I try to render a simple Docbook article, made in
|> XMLSpy, FOP states: Entity 'euml' not defined
|> Somewhere in my XML is the text: defini&euml;ren
|> How can I configure FOP to use these entities?
| You have to declare the entity before using it. E.g.:
| <?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>
| <!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC '-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN'
| 'docbookx.dtd' [
| <!ENTITY euml 'your_definition_here'>
| ]>

Actually, if you use DocBook you get all those entities by default. My
guess is that your document doesn't have any doctype declaration at
all. Add one and you should (1) find any errors that you might have
made and (2) get entities.

OTOH, I'm not sure how you got &euml; all the way through to the FO file.
So maybe I'm confused.

                                        Be seeing you,
