Subject: Two nagging problems with docbook2pdf in texlive 2019
For context, I have published two books marked up in Docbook xml, the first in 2003, and the second in 2010. Both were converted to pdf using docbook2pdf on linux boxes using customized dsssl stylesheets and several tex packages.
In anticipation of writing a third book, I installed texlive on a Ubuntu 20.04 box, and was pleased to find the familiar tools and packages there. I copied my 2010 book over from the very old computer where it was living, and with a few tweaks, I can get it to process (mostly) with my previous stylesheets. However, there are two nagging problems with the docbook2pdf included with texlive:
In troubleshooting this, I found that the same things happen with a very simple book.xml file and no customization in the dsssl stylesheets, i.e., docobook2pdf book.xml using the default stylesheet.
I realize this toolchain is very old, but I would really like to get it working again. I have looked at other toolchains:
Any suggestions on fixing these issues?
Thanks in advance,
