Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] processing-instruction does not work within <link> tag

Hi Flavia,
HTML does not support nested links, so that any hot text for a link must be processed in a special way to turn off any nested links. The content is processed in mode="no.anchor.mode". As it turns out, there is no template for processing instructions in that mode. But the easy fix is to add this to your customization layer:

<xsl:template match="processing-instruction()" mode="no.anchor.mode">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="."/>

This then uses the regular template for the processing instruction.

I am using libxml2-2.7.8 and docbook-xsl-1.78.1

In my customization layer, I have a processing instruction which
consists of a simple text string:

<xsl:template match="processing-instruction('brand')">ABC</xsl:template>

and in my .xml I have a link:

<link linkend='my_section_id'>The brand is <?brand?></link>

In the pdf output link I see: "The brand is ABC"
but in the html link text I see "The brand is"

In most of the rest of the html output the instruction is being
processed and <?brand?> is replaced by "ABC".

Any ideas why the processing-instruction('brand') is not being processed
within the <link> tag for the html output?
