Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Entity not defined

Actually, those entities are defined in the DocBook DTD.  It seems that the processor is no longer able to find the DTD.  That is odd, given that you are using a relative path for the system identifier in the DOCTYPE.

Thanks, I guess I could. But, it does not yet make sense to me to add entities because I switched from Saxon to Xlstproc. I was assuming that I need an argument to add to declare those standard entities.

You need to define any entities you wish to use in your DOCTYPE entry.
For example:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC '-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.5 //EN'
'../../DocBook/docbook-xml/docbookx.dtd' [
<!-- HTML-like character entities -->
    <!ENTITY frac12 ''>
    <!ENTITY lsquo '''>
    <!ENTITY rsquo ''>
    <!ENTITY ldquo '"'>
    <!ENTITY rdquo '"'>
] >
