Are there any specific problems you've seen with 2.7.8? I have a machine
with 2.7.7 and have no problems with the DocBook schemas. I did just
file a patch for a bug I ran across with using choice in name classes
for attributes, but the DocBook schemas don't use that.

Sorry for the delay in replying, it's been a while since I looked at this.

The problem I was seeing with xmllint was spurious error messages if the
docbook file was incorrect. There's a docbook file here:


In the file referenced above, there are leading dashes ("-") before some of the high level opening tags.

I (admittedly a newcomer to DocBook) have never seen this and assume it would not be valid xml. Please explain.
