Hm. I know changed to use <screen> with <co> instead of <screenco> or
<programlistingco> which seems to work fine except a bug in the PDF
output (callout graphics, that should be put besides each other are put
under each other). I attached a sample output
of ../docbook/trunk/defguide/en/refpages/elements/screenco/example.1.gen
(as XML article) that shows this bug - I guess it's really a bug in the
FO stylesheets, because HTML output works fine.

Yeah. This could have been a solution :) I just have one problem with
that: The extensions do not exist on Debian systems. Unfortunately I
cannot provide them with the docbook-xsl package. Maybe it could be a
way to provide the extensions (and only the extensions, not the whole
saxon.jar) as separate java archive (something like
saxon-nwalsh-ext.jar). But I don't know, if this is possible or if the
Saxon version in docbook-xsl's SVN is heavily patched. I should ask our
pkg-java team. They should probably know.

Thanks for your answer.

Regards, Daniel
