This is probably a bug in the docbook-xsl shipped in F10.

Please post the output of `rpm -q docbook-style-xsl`

Comment 3 Jeff Fearn 2008-11-30 17:48:39 EST
This is a bug in the non-customised XSL and is therefore not a bug in Publican.

You should transfer this bug to the appropriate Fedora component or open a bug upstream.

Below is my discussion of the problem that has been introduced in to the common XSL, hopeful this will help the package maintainers resolve this issue for you.

This issue is caused by a change to /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.74.0/common/common.xsl

Line 577 reads:

  <xsl:if test="$node//orgname">
    <xsl:if test="$node//honorific or $node//firstname
                  or ($node//othername and $author.othername.in.middle != 0)">
      <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="$node//orgname[1]"/>

The solution, IMHO, is to get a variable, which defaults off, added to that if statement.


in params.xsl:

<xsl:param name="weird.use.of.orgname" select="0"/>

in common.xsl:

<xsl:if test="$node//orgname and $weird.use.of.orgname != 0">

Comment 7 Ondrej Vasik 2008-12-12 04:36:05 EST
Thanks for info and suggestions, it is not only for html output, but general problem in docbook-style-xsl 1.74.0. It does the same error even with xsltproc/passivetex for e.g. example from docbook.org site http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/bookinfo.html ... will try to find out why they did the change and possibly use the approach suggested by Jeff in comment #3 - to keep that weird behaviour available for possible use.
Comment 8 Ondrej Vasik 2008-12-12 04:40:32 EST
From 1.74.0 Changelog:
● Michael(tm) Smith: common.xsl

    Added support for orgname in authorgroup. Thanks to Camille
