Hi,

I don't understand - all tags have contents already. However if you mess
around with the order, docbook validity breaks. You just have to take my
word for it.

No - if that were the case I wouldn't have instructed you not to
translate entities. Entities are not used for language-sensitive
phrases, they are used for automatically replacing things like menu
entries (translated in a separate template), version numbers, and so on.
