Using the pdf version of the postgres manual I wonder if
it wouldn't be better to replace single-quotes inside
<programlisting> with ' (apostrophe).
There are two advantages:
1. it makes it possible to copy-and-paste examples from
the pdf file.
2. it prevents running together of two (or more)
single-quotes into a single double-quote.
Both problems occur only in pdf, not in html.
A disadvantage is that sgml source files become less
I compiled such a converted pdf with the attached perl
The perl program can easily be made to generate the diffs
for all sgml files; I'll do that if it is considered
useful. On the other hand, maybe this conversion of ' to
&apod; should be built into the xslt processing (to leave
the sgml more readable)?
