Is embedded Schematron not possible for DocBook 5.0 validation with Jing, @ndw, because of the old -p [phase] stuff? cc @james_clark—@abdelazer
@abdelazer I don’t believe I ever got it working with Jing, but I don’t recall why.—@ndw
@ndw I just feel goofy not having a better validation answer for clients. I guess it's two-pass FTW?—@abdelazer
@abdelazer I think Kohsuke’s MSV can do it in one pass. But I often do two pass, which is !FTL at least.—@ndw
@ndw When will the DocBook 5.x schemas be released with the ISO-Schematron namespace? I'm finding new tooling that doesn't work with the old—@abdelazer
@abdelazer My bad. I’ll put it on the list for the next release.—@ndw

Well, the iPhone Twitter app is seriously borked. Even re-installing didn't help. Crash city.—@ndw

I gather 9/11 is now book burning day. Heck of a way to memorialize people--might as well burn the First Amendment, means the same thing—@shelleypowers
@shelleypowers Ugh. "Where they burn books, so too will they in the end burn human beings." -Heine—@ndw

A bulkhead window? Did I not look at seatguru, or did they get it wrong? Maybe I was counting on an upgrade? At least it's the short leg.—@ndw

@ndw Does #xmlcalabash now require #Saxon 9.2 minimum? Seems to be a dependency on net.sf.saxon.functions.ExtensionFunctionDefinition now?—@adamretter
@adamretter Yes, sorry. Docs out of date. Bad norm! No biscuit! Will fix...—@ndw

Fscking iTunes! Deleted all my music because I synced w/o having the music drive mounted.—@ndw

Broadband! From my mom’s new apartment. Miraculous!—@ndw
