Description Sam Varshavchik 2007-01-02 15:08:58 UTC
Description of problem:

sgml major mode fails with Docbook documents

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create sample.sgml with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no" ?>
<!DOCTYPE chapter PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.4//EN"

<chapter id="index">
  <title>Test chapter</title>


2. open sample.sgml in emacs
3. Press TAB, or select the DTD -> Parse DTD menu option
Actual results:

/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xml-dtd-4.4-1.0-30.1/ent/isotech.ent line 23 col 11
entity common.attrib
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xml-dtd-4.4-1.0-30.1/dbpoolx.mod line 844 col 31 entity
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xml-dtd-4.4-1.0-30.1/docbookx.dtd line 136 col 8 entity
/home/mrsam/src/man-pages/t.sgml line 3 col 0 
Name expected; at: :base	CDATA	

Expected results:

sgml-mode should parse the DTD and allow indentation/editing of Docbook documents.

Additional info:

There's nothing wrong with docbook DTDs.  xsltproc parses them just fine, and
properly processes the sample document:

$ xsltproc -o html/
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.69.1-5.1/xhtml/chunk.xsl sample.sgml
Writing index.html for chapter(index)

Comment 1 Sam Varshavchik 2007-01-02 15:14:54 UTC
The problem appears to be the sgml major mode.  Whether the file is sample.sgml
or sample.xml, emacs opens it in sgml major mode by default.  Switching to xml
mode, via META-x xml-mode, and emacs now parses the DTD without logging any errors.
