Subject: AW: [dita] hazard statement widths

You are right, but do we realy try to avoid any possible stupidity done by

If someone defines a table width of 2 inches and adds an image into a table
cell giving the width of 3 inches? Isn't it the same problem?

But on one point you are absolutely right, we should review the note and
hazardstatement attributes for DITA Version 1.3. There are a couple of open
issues there, e.g. additional attributes to define the panel arrangement of
a note or hazardstatement. 

Paul, I will take you input to our subcommittee and we will discuss what
additional attributes are required and which should be removed. For DITA 1.2
we have just copied the attributes from note. But there might be better

Betreff: [dita] hazard statement widths

In a hazard statement, you can set the width of the hazard statement using
the attribute width. There is also an align attribute, so if the set width
is smaller than the available width, we could align the output to center,
right, or left. So far so good. But then there is also a width attribute on
the hazardsymbol tag which is a child of the hazard statement.

There is nothing to prevent users from doing things like setting the hazard
statement width to 2 inches and the hazard symbol width to 3 inches. 

It seems either we need to remove one of the width attributes from the DTD
or the spec needs to define what the correct processing should be in such
