Description Murray McAllister 2008-09-17 22:09:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Numbering for ulinks and footnotes are inconsistent.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.2 (Tikanga)
* publican-0.37-0.el5
* publican-fedora-0.15-0.el5
* fop-0.95-0.2.beta1.rh1.el5
* saxon-6.5.5-1jpp.3.el5
* java-1.5.0-sun-
* evince-0.6.0-8.el5
* Firefox 3.0.1 <http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/>

How reproducible:
Always for the book mentioned below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "svn co http://svn.fedorahosted.org/svn/selinuxguide"
2. "cd selinuxguide/community/trunk/SELinux_User_Guide; make html-en-US; make pdf-en-US"
Actual results:
In this example, the counting for ulinks and footnotes is reset after each chapter (makes sense). There are a few instances where this is not the case, and the numbering is off.


* see the last bullet point on page 5, "Risk report: Three years of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4[910]". This is a ulink followed by a footnote. It should be [8]. See pdf0.png

See the bottom of page 19: "Managing Software with yum[23]". [23] should be [1]. The footnote with [23] is numbered [3] instead of [23] or [1]. See pdf1.png

Screenshots taken from evince-0.6.0-8.el5

Expected results:
Number to be consistent (or at least no allowed to go up to [900]).

Additional info:
Same results when viewed with Adobe Reader.

Comment 3 Jeff Fearn 2008-09-17 22:31:03 EDT
The issue here is that there isn't a space or comma between the two numbers.


On page 5: link 9 is for the ulink, link 10 is for the footnote.
On page 19: link 2 is for the ulink, link 3 is for the footnote.

I'm not sure this is a practice we wish to support. Assigning to the great Editor in Chief for his input.
Comment 5 Jeff Fearn 2008-11-18 20:35:23 EST
Resized footnote ref number and added padding to prevent numbers collapsing together.
Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2009-01-14 21:57:00 EST
publican-0.39-0.fc9, publican-fedora-0.16-0.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
