Thanks, again!, to Mr. Stayton, I resolved my table difficulties.
I do have an observation:
On reading the DocBook book by Walsh, it is obvious that one should
not put text content directly into a lisitem. One must put it inside
of a para or similar xml tag that accepts #PCDATA as per the DTD.
However, the file below formats fine using the xmlto under Linux
and the FOP formatter from Apache. It does not format using
the tools from RenderX.
Of course, RenderX is clearly blameless as the input does not follow
However, I note this for the benefit of those who might have
the same difficulty as I did:
<listitem>technically, text should not be in a listitem</listitem>
<listitem>It is not declared with #PCDATA in the dtd </listitem>
Under RenderX, it gives the following error message:
@toolman#/home/leffstudent/XEP >xep.sh l.xml.fo
(document [system-id file:/home/leffstudent/XEP/l.xml.fo]
[error] file:/home/leffstudent/XEP/l.xml.fo: line 2: Element 'fo:list-item-body' cannot have non-empty text descendants here. Only block-level elements are permitted in this context.
[validation total: 2 errors]
Parse error: Invalid XSL FO source 'file:/home/leffstudent/XEP/l.xml.fo': 2 error(s) found during validation

At least so far, I have not needed use.extensions=1
for the docbook extensions to format the documents I have tried with
RenderX. Thus, the fact that I haven't made them work
is not now a concern and may never be.
I was curious what services these extensions might provide.
