Subject: Expected PDF output of minimal document - total newbie alert!
Hello all, I found the attached minimal document in a tutorial online. I need to know what the document is expected to look like when converted to PDF. The tutorial explained how to produce HTML, not PDF, so there was no sample PDF (I don't think that there was any sample HTML for that matter, but anyway...) I am using xsltproc, fop-trunk, DocBook stylesheets 1.73.2, DocBook DTD 4.1.2. I have attached 3 PDF documents: 1) Book2-1.pdf xsltproc /path/to/1.62.0/stylesheets/fo/docbook.xsl book2-1.fo These were the stylesheets that I originally downloaded years ago to build the documentation for an open source program that I use. The resulting FO caused exceptions in fop-trunk. Someone on the FOP mailing list manually removed the offending constructs and then produced the PDF with fop-trunk. 2) Book2-2.pdf xsltproc /path/to/1.73.2/stylesheets/fo/docbook.xsl book2-2.fo fop-trunk book2-2.fo book2-2.pdf 3) Book2-3.pdf xsltproc /path/to/1.73.2/stylesheets/fo/docbook.xsl book2-3.fo fop-0.94 book2-3.fo book2-3.pdf I decided to try the stable version of fop, but it wasn't quite right either, in my opinion. The XML file is in a gzipped tar file. The URL of the DocBook DTD in the header is a local path on my machine. Hotmail removes any text enclosed in angle brackets so I had to disguise it. My opinion is that book2-1.pdf is probably the right answer, but I cannot produce it without manual intervention, and, being at the "Hello, world!" stage, I would not know how to perform that intervention. Am I right that the author have intended or expected book2-1.pdf? Would I get better results from another FO processor? Thanks in advance.
