Re: handling tags and PIs within a macro

I have't looked at how the docbook stylesheets expand %t and friends but it is quite likely that they need to see the full docbook markup with all the id's in place. That is you need to expand your private docbook extensions before calling the docbook styleheet, so you need three stages 1) your own stylesheet that is an "identity transform" with additional templates that expands j_enty out to a <formalpara and any other similar local elements that you need to remove The output from that stylesheet should then be a valid docbook file with no local additions which you can then process using teh docbook stylesheets, so 2) process with the docbook stylesheet to get an FO file 3) process with FOP to get PDF.
