Thanks very much for this pointer, I think I will have do something as you have done and come up with a hybrid solution.

I think this is going to be very quick question, but when I put entities in my file and then process it with xsltproc it is not expanding them out, so none of my files are being found.  I am using Linux.  Any ideas?

Thanks again, Russell

I struggled with that also. Here what I found worked best for me. I used a relative path (mostly) instead of a fixed one. I also needed this to work for Windows and Linux so I structured it so that I would only adjust the base dir. Here is mine:

DOCTYPE catalog PUBLIC "-//OASIS/DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog V1.0//EN"

BASE_DIR = this is the base of the whole doc tree including doctools

Linux : "file:///root/doc/"

Win32 : "../../"

Good afternoon all,

I am trying to write a catalog file for my DocBook processing so all the paths that I need are in one place.  At the moment I have limited success.

I have pretty much lifted the Catalog file from

'Example DocBook catalog file' - http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/ExampleCatalog.html

and I have got the system to find my customisation stylesheet in the correct location.

However when my file then tries to import the Docbook  XSL file, it does it with the same path location as it did when it found my customisation, even though in my catalog I have a different path for this file.

I am using xsltproc to produce my FO file, the command I am using is:

    XML_CATALOG_FILES="catalog.xml" xsltproc -o output.fo cpsltdonline.xsl c815ea1d111988cfc9e630e7feb3b6a6.xml

If i re-run this command using fo-docbook.xsl instead it works perfectly and I get the FO, trouble is that it is not what I want.  I have appened the Catalog file to the end of this email.

Thanks, Russell
