Description Bob Dowling 2002-08-22 10:30:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
A valid (at least I think it's valid) XML DocBook file (table.xml at the URL
above) causes xsltproc to fail, claiming to find a loop in the style sheets it
is processing.

I have updated the relevant packages from the 7.3 releases to the ones that ship
with the current second beta.  Exact versions are in the typescript.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Copy table.xml and Makefile from the URL given.
2.make table.fo


Actual Results:  System fails with error message:
 runtime error: file  /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets/fo/table.xsl line
911 element text
 xsltApplyOneTemplate: loop found ???
 try increasing xsltMaxDepth (--maxdepth)

Expected Results:  I expected a valid FO file.

Additional info:

I believe the XML file is valid because I use the emacs PSGML XML mode to create
it using it to prompt for valid elements.

Scratch this.  Error lay between keyboard and seat.
(My tgroup doesn't carry the required cols attribute.  When I insert it
everything is fine)
Sorry for wasting your time.

You can use 'xmllint -valid' to check validity. 
Guess that it works when you correct that, and closing.
