Odd Behavior with Fedora Entity



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I was reviewing the entities in the current --- fedora-entities-en.ent. And 
noticed a rather peculiar behavior. One which I assume was expected to behave 
in a different fashion.

It has to do with: LEGALNOTICE-RELNOTES

Now I put this entity in my bookinfo/articleinfo element.  Anyways, upon 
building the source, the xml processor is directed to generate a link labeled 
"Legal Notice". This in effect generates a seperate page entirely with the 
content of the LEGALNOTICE-RELNOTES entity and it is pointed to from this 
link. This page is entirely blank minus the content of the entity. No header 
or footer etc.... No good.

I don't believe that this is the intended behavior. It is my assumption[yeah i 
know] that (like many other doc projects) that this entity was intended to be 
called from the abstract element of bookinfo/articleinfo. Personally, i think 
it provides a better reference to the licensing than a simple link. However, 
in order to do so. There must be a change to the content of the common file 
- --- legalnotice-relnotes-en.xml.

In essence, this file contains common elements like that of 
legalnotice-content-en.xml. A simple removal of the legalnotice element 
parent in legalnotice-relnotes-en.xml corrects the problem and the entities 
behave as is expected.
