Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] base.dir param not working in customization layer

And I'd even tried the single-quotes to fix a different param issue I 
was having and didn't think of it here. :-)  That did it, thanks!

On a related note, I'm having a similar problem with the 
chunker.output.indent parameter being ignored.  Whether it's set via the 
customization file or command line, I still get a line break-free output 
file.  (This is the one where I DID try putting "yes" in quotes, and it 
still didn't work, yet didn't think to try that on the base.dir as well. 
<g>)  Would that be a related issue?

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an 
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it 
to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the 
possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of 
it."  -- Thomas Jefferson
