Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] HTML output contains ""

I can't tell what your PHP framework is doing to the HTML, but I suspect it
is the source of both problems.  Do you generate the HTML with XSLT and then
feed it into the PHP, or does the PHP execute the XSLT process?  Can you
examine the HTML before it is processed by PHP?
