Subject: Re: [docbook] inserting general entities

Hi René

just use a xinclude, that's simpler and has more style ;-)

use the following tag is your main document:
<xi:include href="bibliography.xml"

now you must use the parameter --xinclude, if you use xsltproc.
if you use an other xslt-processors, have a look at the manual.
