Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Query: bug in <citation>#PCDATA</citation>

Thanks Bob, I'll just ignore the warning message 
and hope it goes away in some later revision of 
the stylesheet.  It's hardly worth the effort of 
patching in my customization layer.  When I 
specifically want a link in a <citation> I've 
been putting an <xref> inside the <citation>, 
that seems to work fine.
I don't think that guessing when a target was 
intended but none was found because of a typo can 
or should be attempted.
