Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Resolving xi:include with xpointer="element()"
Thank you. That was the problem. I had been including sections from a file that was itself included and had no DOCTYPE. Now I include the same sections from a resolved version of the larger source document which then includes the DOCTYPE. Xmllint resolves everything without complaint. I really appreciate the help you and others have sent my way.
