Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DB soft-hyphen characters and DB 5: entity doesn't work

Hi Tom,
The ­ entity is declared to be the same character reference ­, so if the 
character reference works then the problem is in resolving the entity reference. I 
infer from your use of the -ns- stylesheets that you are using DocBook 5. The DocBook 
5 RNG schema does not support entity declarations, so ­ is not declared in your 
documents.  You should be getting a parsing error to that effect.

A workaround is required to use the DocBook entity declarations from DocBook 4.  See 
this reference for more information:


Let me know if I'm misunderstanding the problem.
