[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#299457: xmlto: improper parsing of replaceable groups

Package: xmlto
Version: 0.0.18-5
Severity: normal


upon creating a docbook file for a manpage (refentry), xmlto fails to
properly translate the following situation within a cmdsynopsis:
I think, the intention is clear: it should be translated to:
  --number [number|name]
and docbook2x does this. xmlto creates the following:
  --number [numbername]
It just "forgets" the '|'.

A groups with arg is translated properly.

This fails with both, target man and target html-nochunks.

If this bug should be for another package than xmlto, please reassign it
to the proper one, thanks.
