Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] productname

The source of the problem is that in the  DocBook DTD, productname has a
default value of 'trade' for its 'class' attribute.  The parser inserts it,
even when it is not there.  There is no way for the stylesheet to detect if
it was inserted automatically or by the author.

You have to customize the template to fix it.  Copy the match="productname"
template from html/inline.xsl to your customization layer and change it to
something like:

<xsl:template match="productname">
  <xsl:call-template name="inline.charseq"/>
  <xsl:if test="@class != 'trade' or (@class = 'trade' and
    <xsl:call-template name="dingbat">
      <xsl:with-param name="dingbat" select="@class"/>

This adds a second condition to the test that triggers the insertion of the
TM trademark but leaves other symbols alone.  For the instances of the
productname element you want to show a TM, add a role="showmark" attribute.
