Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] localization problem with xref elements

It doesn't seem to be caused by an incomplete translation, as the text in 
common/fr.xml in 1.73.2 has the translated text.  When I test an xref with 
<book lang="fr">, I get the translated text for the xref.  A more detailed 
example would help.

Can you provide a minimal testcase to reproduce (including your
customization layer)? Then we could also take a look, if you do things
right :)

If it's caused by an outdated or incomplete French translation, then you
can simply "fix" the problem in your customization layer.
