Description Dave Malcolm 2004-09-16 20:38:39 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
Within the Stateless Linux HOWTO source, I had some content of this form:
  <title>Do something</title>
  <para>Some text</para>
  <para>Some more text</para>

When I ran Make to generate an HTML version of the DocBook, all of the
elements within each <step> element appeared in one block without
linebreaks.  This ruined the readability of the output, since I got
huge paragraphs, rather than a series of manageable ones.  The title
elements looked wrong as well.  (It was worked around by putting each
para into its own step inside substeps, but I believe the problem remains)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try this input (haven't checked it, I'm afraid):
  <title>Do something</title>
  <para>Some text</para>
  <para>Some more text</para>

Now view the generated html

I tested this. It's definitely *not* broken in a generic "xmlto," i.e.:

   xmlto html test.xml

It only happens if I build in our FDP environment. Something to do
with our surrounding "stuff" (sorry, not an XSLT or any other related
tool expert here) is breaking the proper behavior.

Dave, are you still seeing this problem? I just built your doc and
didn't see it. We haven't seen this before since we usually use
<orderedlist> instead of <procedure> and <step>.

Comment 3 Paul W. Frields 2004-11-26 16:15:47 UTC
I'm still seeing this behavior under FC3 and using an updated copy of
the fedora-docs CVS stuff.

Comment 4 Tammy Fox 2004-12-01 02:35:27 UTC
Hi Paul. Will you attach the test document you used to reproduce this
on FC3? Thanks.

Comment 5 Paul W. Frields 2005-08-20 03:18:41 UTC
Here is the document in its entirety, hoping it reproduces in Bugzilla OK:

<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
 "http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.2/docbookx.dtd" [

      <title>Do something</title>
      <para>Some text</para>
      <para>Some more text</para>

Comment 6 Paul W. Frields 2005-11-27 13:52:59 UTC
This is working properly.  Closing.
