Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] epub3 follow-up

Hi Dick,
Sorry for the delay in responding as I was out of town for a bit.

The item about <p> in <th> is soon to be fixed in epubcheck, so don't worry about that one.

Regarding the rules attribute, that is not supported in HTML5, which is what epub3 uses. See:


Are you getting a @rules attribute from DocBook XSL 1.77.1?

Subject: [docbook-apps] epub3 follow-up

This note is probably mostly for Bob, but I'm posting to the list because the answer may be of interest to all.

I've been getting two table-related syntax errors from epubcheck 3.0b5. The first complains about <p> inside <th> and the second complains about the presence of the rules attribute inside a <table> element.

Both appear to be valid xhtml, and doing a little web searching, I see that Bob reported the first to the epubcheck developers a while ago.

My question is:

Is it worth the trouble to do a script to "fix" these cases so that epubcheck will report a clean result, or are they well enough known that distributors (Apple ibooks and BN Pubit, for example) will accept those errors when they encounter them in their input testing?

Thanks for any insight you can provide.
