Objet :   Re: DOCBOOK: Default entities not working

/ Horacio <homega@ciberia.es> was heard to say:
| whenever I try to put the attribute value in between quotes when
| defining an entity like:
| <!ENTITY bsd "<systemitem class="osname">BSD</systemitem>">
| I get the following error message:
| openjade:entidades.ent:1:34:E: name start character invalid: only
delimiter ">" and parameter separators are allowed
| Is there any substitute for double quotes for declaring entities?

Yep. Single quotes:

 <!ENTITY bsd '<systemitem class="osname">BSD</systemitem>'>


 <!ENTITY bsd "<systemitem class='osname'>BSD</systemitem>">

And if you really needed both kinds, &apos; and &quot; are ' and "

| Also, some default entities like &lsqb;, &rsqb;, &hellip;, ...
| don´t produce the expected character output.  I´ve noticed this
| also happens in some documents around the Internet.  Is there any
| solution other than declaring an entity which should be declared
| by default?

It's reallly a matter of what HTML browsers understand, not the SG/XML
