Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] <link linkend> in XHTML output


Regarding question #2, my team ran into this same problem last week and found it only occurred in Firefox 3.x (not in Firefox 2.x and not in IE—we didn’t check other browsers). Part of the problem is that Firefox 3.x expects *valid* XHTML (while earlier versions didn’t). And, I guess the XHTML output from DocBook (using Saxon 6.5.5, at least) is not valid XHTML with respect to closing anchor tags. Our quick fix was to switch to outputting HTML instead of XHTML. A co-worker who investigated this problem says there’s an add-on for Saxon that makes it generate XHTML, but I don’t know much beyond that.

Subject: [docbook-apps] <link linkend> in XHTML output



This is a two part question.

1. When I create chunked XHTML my <link linkend> tags do not seem to translate to XHTML. The ID are missing, and the links don't work. Is there a way to solve this without changing the way I link items in DocBook?

2. In every part of my chunked document the text reacts to any "hovering" of the mouse.  This should not happen, not all of the text is a link.

Here is a sample of the output XHTML code:

<div class="sect1" lang="en">

         <div class="titlepage">

                  <h2 class="title" style="clear: both">

                     <a id="Title 1"/>Title 1</h2>

         <p>Some text here.</p> 1

         <p>Some more text. A link <a class="link" href="Link_to_name">Link Name</a> 2 even more text.</p> 3

         <div class="sect2" lang="en">

            <div class="titlepage">

                     <h3 class="title">
                        <a id="d0e726"/>Title 2</h3>


1 Text reacts to "hover"
2 Text reacts to "hover"
3 Text no longer reacts to "hover"
4 Text reacts to "hover"

I have a feeling this has to do with the <a> tag being closed with a "/" instead of </a>, but why is this happening?
