Subject: AW: [docbook] external entities in docbook

Thanks so far, but this does not really solve my problem.


I need some kind of mechanism that can set the entities from command line.

I don’t understand how this could work. Right now we simply exchange the entities file we reference in every file……


Using the customization of the DTD we again have to exchange files there.


And using catalogs is the same. I have to reference something in every XML file...... or am I wrong? I can provide something to xsltproc, but still I don’t really understand that.

Can somebody give me a useful example for that?

For DocBook 4, the answer is yes. You can use the method described here to include the entity declarations in a DTD customization:

Subject: [docbook] external entities in docbook


Hello list,


at the moment we have a reference to a file containing our entitiy definitions like this:

<!ENTITY % myents SYSTEM "Q:/docbook/Tourmalet_en/Variables/Variables.ent">


This is of course ugly. Is there a different way of providing entities into any file without this?
