In order to set up your XML toolchain, please peruse the excellent
I will leave docbook2pdf for what it is and dig into the XSL stuff.
Many new stuff to learn ;-)
Certainly the better choice.
Still a bit surprised though that docbook2pdf (and docbook2html as
well) give those error out of the box.
The reason is probably that hardly anyone except me uses SGML documents
and an appropriate toolchain these days, so these errors may go
unnoticed for years. As mentioned previously, I don't use docbook2pdf
but a handcrafted toolchain using openjade and the DSSSL stylesheets for
those few cases that require SGML documents. Once properly set up,
things work flawlessly, but XML documents deserve different tools these
