Description Enrico Scholz 2004-01-13 23:33:56 EST
Description of problem:

Generated PDF output is cluttered by measurement tags.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN"


| $ xmlto pdf test.xml

produces an PDF file which contains

"- -4pc - -4pc"

in the upper left corner. Same happens at lists also.
A document which demostrates this is available at

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-01-14 04:58:30 EST
Fixed in 1.64.1-3.
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2004-01-14 15:19:48 EST
Still active on <variablelist>'s. See already told URL for an example
(2nd page).
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-01-15 05:35:10 EST
Please try 1.64.1-4.
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2004-01-18 11:10:28 EST
sorry, no change and still in -4


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN"      

Comment 5 Enrico Scholz 2004-01-19 16:43:09 EST
Cool, measurement tags disappeared with -5. But unfortunately, the
text went away with it :(

For an example, just replace the 'test' para above with a long
sentence. The result will be a text in an only 2-3 cm wide column at
the right side
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-01-19 17:01:10 EST
Yes, it all seems to be broken whichever way I look at it. :-(

We might have to back off to an earlier docbook-xsl revision for
XSL-FO output.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-01-20 06:45:47 EST
Okay, think it's really fixed now.
Comment 8 Enrico Scholz 2004-01-21 20:09:09 EST
Thanks, output is ok now
