RE: [Ethereal-dev] [PATCH] -G option & doc/dfilter... change to i nclude hfinfo->blurb

(I'm continuing this thread here in ethereal-doc to discuss the
ethereal-doc-related
aspects of the -G option postprocessing and the ways to setup the
ethereal-doc
environment to test it).

I'm slightly confused about dfilter2sgml. It seems that this script
is never called by either Makefile (ethereal or ethereal-doc); also there
seems
to be an obsolete (non-purged) version eproto2sgml in ethereal-doc.
Also, the question of what to do about the 2 copies of dfilter2sgml
remains.

So, for testing of my changes to dfilter2sgml I just did a manual
ethereal -G | ./dfilter2sgml sgml.doc.template >
ug-src/filter-fields.sgml
in the ethereal-doc tree, and then performed a make.

Some changes were needed - both for the -G accomodation,
and also for some newer entries' apostrophy symbols in the protocol name
(DOCSIS stuff).

Here is a tested patch against ethereal-doc/dfilter2sgml [attached]; would
you
like a patch on filter-fileds.sgml (built from the cvs ethereal version -G
dump),
too?
