Sorry but I'm still interested answer on quesion about Solaris XML
man pan pages correctnes :)

Sorry, but I don't know.

More detailed example from Solaris below. Both files as you see have
DOCTYPE. Can you look on this ?

As far as I can see from a quick look it is not well-formed:

--- gdm.1 file ---
"-//Sun Microsystems//DTD DocBook V3.0-Based
 SolBook Subset V2.0//EN"

You can't have the DOCTYPE declaration here, if you include this file from 

How it can be correct if in document only one time can be used DOCTYPE
? :>

As I explained in my last mail, the XML specification defines it this way. 
For example if you have a "main file" which includes several other files 
like this:


Again, every file which is included from main.xml can't have _any_ DOCTYPE 
declaration! Except "main.xml" of course. Unfortunatly I can't find the 
text in the XML specification at the moment.

And/or this files only look like correct and all "magick" is in 
man tool which know how to correctly parse this files (?). Is it
possible ?

I don't understand what you mean. Could you explain it again?

One tip:
Before you try to transform your text from XML into something other 
useful, you should validate it with xmllint. It is senseless to apply 
stylesheets to invalid or not well-formed XML files.

Do one step (validation) and if this is successfull do the other 
(transformation). The other way around doesn't work.
