Subject: Re: [docbook] Need help using MathML ("Unknown formatting object "{http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML}math" encountered")

Thank you Stefan and Thomas,
you have helped me to make a big step ahead using docbook.

Fop is now working, although not quite elegantly. I have installed jeuclid:
$ sudo apt-get install libjeuclid-fop-java libjeuclid-core-java
I had to modify the /usr/bin/fop script by adding these two lines:
find_jars /usr/share/java/jeuclid-core.jar
find_jars /usr/share/java/jeuclid-fop.jar
I know, this is Ubuntu/Debian specific, but there must be a less intrusive way of letting fop know about the jeuclid jars? Copying the jars into /usr/share/fop/ didn't help.

Concerning the math formatting only working in xhtml, not in html files, I followed Stefans advice. He is right, and I can create working xhtml files.
It is strange that the formatting doesn't work for html files. Renaming the generated test.xhtml to test.html removes all math content again.
There are many examples that display MathML content in html files. Is there any possibility to make xsltproc produce such html files without missing content?

Thank you

I don't think the problem is related to stylesheets, be it namespace
aware or not.

FOP needs to "know" how to format MathML markup. By default, this is not
the case. Install the JEuclid plugin[1] and try it again.
