Description Steve Bonneville 2012-03-15 13:48:23 EDT
Description of problem:

In /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.75.2/common, the pt_br.xml and pt.xml files are missing characters used in Portuguese in the lowercase.alpha and uppercase.alpha gentext definitions.

The effect of this was seen when using Publican to build documentation translated into Portuguese.  The brand in question automatically puts chapter titles into all-caps; but the missing accented characters were not capitalized because the defined set of "lowercase" and "uppercase" characters for Portuguese is incomplete in the current docbook-style-xsl package.

Lines 205-206 of pt_br.xml currently read:
<l:gentext key="lowercase.alpha" text="abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"/>
<l:gentext key="uppercase.alpha" text="ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"/>

The corrected lines SHOULD read:
<l:gentext key="lowercase.alpha" text="abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzàáâãéêíóôõúüç"/>
<l:gentext key="uppercase.alpha" text="ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZÀÁÂÃÉÊÍÓÔÕÚÜÇ"/>

The pt.xml file will need a similar correction.  Compare fr.xml or de.xml for reference to languages that have similar extended character sets properly defined.

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


(docbook-style-xsl-1.76.1-1.fc14 is also known to be affected, Fedora that isn't EOL has not been checked yet)

Also present in F19 docbook-style-xsl-1.78.1

Quick update - in 1.79.1 it was fixed upstream for pt.xml - I'll request update for pt-BR as well - as RHEL 6 is in production phase 2 now, I see update in RHEL 6 very unlikely, though.
Comment 12 Ondrej Vasik 2017-08-30 08:48:02 EDT
Clean up, this is not production phase 3 material, pt was fixed upstream, pt-BR has upstream pull request. Closing WONTFIX for RHEL 6, sorry.
Comment 13 Ondrej Vasik 2018-06-12 04:06:02 EDT
Just short update, patch was merged upstream.
