Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] dblatex and FO

The Makefile command specifies the .fo file (which was generated from xsltproc in another step) as the input, and a .pdf file as the output. I'm not a dblatex user, but it is my understanding that it operates on the original XML, not XSL-FO output, to generate a PDF. Is this Makefile in error?You're correct, it does not have a command line parameter for .fo input, just xml or sgml.I just checked that with the current version, 0.3.2. Perhaps an older version used .fo input. There was also an older program called db2latex, I believe. Might could be that used .fo files as input; I've never used it.
I confirm: neither db2latex nor dblatex have ever worked on FO files. Only on XML documents.
