Subject: Eeeek! My Umlauts have vanished!
Hi there, I just upgraded from SuSE 8.1 to SuSE 8.2, which means that instead of using a mixture of various things (I think), it is now all openjade. Now I couldn't really care less about this, except that a DocBook text I had written in German and that produced wonderful Umlaute (the vowels with the dots above them) in the HTML version suddenly has question marks instead of the umlaut-characters that they are supposed to have. The file itself starts with: <? xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?> <!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V4.2//EN" "/usr/share/sgml/db42xml/docbookx.dtd" [ ]> Which worked fine so far. And then we have a bit further down <article id="frog" lang="de"> The only thing that seems to be strange is that the db2html (by Karl Eichwalder <firstname.lastname@example.org>) program I use produces the output: scot@coven:~/> db2html frog.xml /usr/bin/db2html: line 1: ?: No such file or directory I would take this to mean that the conversion program doesn't like the xml line, but that doesn't make sense. I would be grateful for any help somebody here might give; not being able to type the Umlauts like they are on my (German) keyboard would basically make DocBook unusable.
