Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] xxx encountered in section, but no template matches

Hi Paul,
There is something strange going on in your setup, and I don't think you 
have actually fixed the problem.  I use xsltproc 1.1.17 regularly and don't 
see those messages.  Those messages come from a template in docbook.xsl 
(either fo or html) that has match="*". It is designed to catch elements 
not matched by other templates.  But normally every DocBook element is 
matched by at least one template.  Something is happening when your 
stylesheet customization is being assembled to leave out some stylesheet 
modules, perhaps.

The other odd thing is the messages like "listitem encountered in section, 
but no template matches". If you look at the templates generating the 
messages, the second element refered to is always parent::*.  This means 
you have a section containing a listitem as a child element?  That 
certainly would not validate.

I'd be curious if you have tried Saxon to process the same file and 
stylesheet that produces those messages.  If so, I'd try running the XSLT 
debugger in Oxygen on it to see what is going on (Oxygen can't use xsltproc 
in the debugger, but it can use Saxon).
