Hi Claudio,
That was a bug that was introduced in DocBook XSL version 1.77.1, which is 
the version included in Oxygen 14.2.  The bug is fixed in DocBook XSL 
version 1.78.1.

This version of the template with match="d:footnote" is from 1.78.1, and if 
you put in your customization, that should fix the problem until Oxygen gets 
updated to 1.78.1

<xsl:template match="d:footnote">
  <xsl:variable name="name">
    <xsl:call-template name="object.id">
      <xsl:with-param name="conditional" select="0"/>
  <xsl:variable name="href">
    <xsl:value-of select="$name"/>

  <a href="{$href}">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="class.attribute"/>
    <xsl:if test="$generate.id.attributes = 0">
      <xsl:attribute name="name">
        <xsl:value-of select="$name"/>

      <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="class.attribute"/>
      <xsl:call-template name="id.attribute">
        <xsl:with-param name="conditional" select="0"/>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="footnote.number"/>

Subject: [oXygen-user] Footnotes in standard DocBook HTML transformation

I'have experienced a weird problem with html footnote. I'm using a Mac with 
Oxygen 14.2 but whenever I try to produce an html file from an xml snippet 
like this one, (using the standard HTML docbook 5.0 transformation)

  <para>Il 27 gennaio 1961, al Teatro dell’Opera a Roma, venne proiettato in 
anteprima un
                film di produzione privata .... <footnote>
            <para>Lanocita A. (Lan) 1961, Rassegna
                    cinematografica, «Corriere della Sera», 11 febbraio, 
         </footnote>, commentò il
                «Corriere della Sera». L’ufficialità della pellicola è 
confermata dai dubbi
                insinuati dalla stampa comunista sul finanziamento 
governativo della pellicola e
                dalle recensioni elogiative apparse sulla stampa cattolica 
[Merolla 2004, 131].
            <para>Centro cattolico cinematografico
                    1961, Viva l’Italia, «Segnalazioni cinematografiche», 28 
(XLIX), gennaio.</para>

I obtain a footnote link that doesn't work properly
<a href="#ftn.d5e37" class="footnote"><sup class="footnote"><a 

this link refers to
 <div id="ftn.d5e37" class="footnote"><a href="#d5e37" class="para"><sup 
class="para">[1] </sup></a> that works.
I think it is strange that this little bug (the anchor <a name="d5e37"></a> 
has to be moved out of the nested <a>) is still there. May be I am wrong. 
What can I do to solve this problem? I have to write a customisation 
stylesheet or there is something easier to do?
