how to debug this type error? thanks!
os : CentOS release 5.8 (Final)
It might be a character encoding issue we have discovered in Prince 9, which we will fix shortly in a maintenance release. Try using the old HTML parser for now, by passing "-i html4" on the command-line.
@mikeday Thank you very much! It's really helpful.

but use html4 option it doesn't recognize html5 tag, like this
>prince: one.html:656: error: Tag section invalid
>prince: one.html:663: error: Tag article invalid

at what time fix release will be available?

Edited by awang

The tags still work, they just generate unnecessary warnings. :)

Very soon, we just need to package up the new binaries.
really? but when I use html4,
the output pdf is 穷游erå¿ å‘Š character, not original Chinese character.
The old parser requires this in the head to specify the character encoding:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8">

Hopefully we will have the maintenance release ready today, for CentOS at least.
There are new packages for CentOS 5 available for download that fix this issue with the new HTML5 parser. Packages for other platforms will be available soon. Please let me know if you experience any similar issues with the new version.
it' cool, love you
Packages for Prince 9 rev 2 and now available for all platforms except Solaris. :)
I had the same problem, in my case a closing a tag did the trick. (</a>)
Right, we have just identified this nested <a> issue (in this thread) and it will be fixed soon in the next maintenance release of Prince.
