The link to the ACL section in

points to:
when it should point to:

It seems the typo is that in https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-security/trunk/src/docbkx/appendix-db-schema.xml ,
xlink:href=“domain-acls” should be xlink:href=“#domain-acls”

While I’m on this issue – it would be better if the title of Chapter 24 was “Domain Object Security (ACLs)”. If you’re looking for information on ACLs in the 4-page table of contents, the two sections mentioning ACLs in their title arent the ones you’re looking for; “22.3.1. ACL-Aware AfterInvocationProviders” doesn’t link forward to Chapter 24, and the link back from the appendix was broken (above). Since the package itself is called “acl”, its more likely to be what users are searching for than “domain object security”, so changing the title would help here.

The title would also help google locate the page; its not appearing in the results for “spring security acl” at all at the moment, whereas “spring security domain object” has it top of the list.
