Thanks for the tip.

I used the codes found in http://unicode-table.com/en/sets/esperanto/

and generated:

But just another question.

Doesn't matter if I use in the header:

<? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "ISO-8859-1"?>
<? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
In XML you have two options to add characters: directly or with
the syntax&#xHEX_CODEPOINT;. If you used this notation throughout
your document, your encoding will be just ASCII. ;) ASCII is a subset of
the ISO and UTF-8 encodings so you won't see any difference as there are

However, things are different, if you've inserted your characters
directly. In that case, it IS important what encoding you've used. Of
course, this should be added into the XML declaration.

And also don't makes any difference to use:

<article lang = "en">
<article lang = "pt-br">

The codes&#264;&#284; ... works fine.

But if I use:

<article lang = "eo">

Appears an error :


Thanks for your attention,

Error when I use lang = "eo"

$ jw esperanto.xml

I'm not sure, why this happened. Probably an encoding issue in

However, from your output you use the DSSSL stylesheets. These are
quite old. Have you any special reason why you use these instead of

Hi Thomas,

I don't  know the technical details of DocBook.

I just know the tags to generate the xml source files and use the script "jw" on Linux (Debian 6.0) to generate the html files.

Some info about jw script:

The  jw  shell  script  allows to convert a DocBook file (or some other
SGML-based format) to other formats (including HTML, RTF, PS and PDF) with an easy-to-understand syntax. It hides most of Jade's or OpenJade
       complexity and adds comfortable features.

I just installed the docbook-utils package with the command:

apt-get install docbook-utils

Do you suggest any tutorial for a user like me to be able to update the DocBook in Debian Squeeze?

Thanks for your attention.
