Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] <programlisting linenumbering="numbered"> does not number...


Here is the link to the part of Bob’s book that covers the Saxon processor:


I think you can keep the xmllint processing as is (I use it for XInclude processing, too), and just swap in saxon for xsltproc, using Bob’s instructions.

I don’t bother swapping in Xerces (I don’t use any of the features that go beyond what Saxon supports).

I've had some frustrations getting the Java-based processors working and have tried to stick to the xmllint/jing/xsltproc family for that single reason. The Java-based processing answer likely also answers my earlier syntax highlighting question about whether to abandon my current approach with xmllint.

Getting past the tools on the command line (for a hand written Makefile) is just getting frustrating and is why the current chain of commands have never evolved to anything Java-based.
