Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] RE: %isopub character entities not working

I am using:
XEP, Client Edition, Version 3.4, April 30, 2003.

I was using an older docbook.xsl (v 1.22 2003/04/1), so I downloaded
docbook-xsl-1.61.3. The result is better in that I just have a blank (not an
outlined rectangle) where the ✓ should be. 

Any further suggestions?
Thanks. Tara

It is a valid character, but you don't mention what tools
you are using to process the files.  I can get &check;
to show up in the pdf when I use this toolchain:
