Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] xincludes and graphics

Hello Jan,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Indeed, the situation looks very like the one described in the linked ticket. I forgot to mention that I also have nested includes (didn't think it was important).
I will investigate the suggested patch.

As for xmllint, we do have it now in our conversion process, but the whole story was about trying to get rid of it :) Not a must - if I'm not able to patch xerces, I'll just keep the current working solution - but would be nice to know if I'm able to implement the conversion in some other way.

Ekaterina Shikareva.

I suppose you are facing this old Xerces bug:

You can either:
1. patch it for yourself or
2. generate outputs in two steps:

   a. use xmllint for resolving XIncludes into a single XML file (xmllint handles xml:base correctly)
   b. generate outputs using this single file

More info about xmllint can be found at http://xmlsoft.org/xmllint.html It can be downloaded from http://xmlsoft.org/downloads.html

For DocBook v5.0+ you can call it this way:
xmllint --xinclude -o resolved.xml original.xml
