Re: docbook cosmetics

I've put the following line in my *.sgm docbook file (tried in several
<xsl:param name="html.stylesheet">mybook.css</xsl:param>

But when I run 'db2html my.sgm' ... I get stuff like:

jade:../acais.sgm:9:4:E: character ":" not allowed in attribute
specification list
jade:../acais.sgm:9:4:E: element "XSL" undefined
jade:../acais.sgm:9:48:E: character ":" not allowed in end tag

Any ideas?
