It seems that the xml parser, xsltproc, can't find the iso-entities
definitions. The © entity is in the ISOnum.ent file. On my Debian
box that's under /usr/share/xml/entities/xml-iso-entities-8879.1986 . I
haven't installed DocBook on my LFS system yet. You should check that
the iso-entities are installed--I think they don't come with the
DTD's. It's been a while since I used DocBook, but it's always tricky to
set it up to work correctly.
