Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Converting man page references to links

/ Nik Clayton <nik@nothing-going-on.demon.co.uk> was heard to say:
| Something I have been looking for is a way to tell whether or not we're
| currently inside a certain element in the HTML output stream.

No, you can't do that, alas.

| Specifically, suppose you've used <citerefentry> in a section title, which
| has then appeared in the set of ToC links.  When that happens you have two
| nested <a> elements (one for the ToC link, and inside it a link to the manpage
| CGI).

Don't do the citrefentry links in toc-mode. Hmmm. I see that there
isn't a toc-mode. Uh. Hmmm.

| Is there a way I can query the (make element ...) output stream, or do
| I need to keep track of this in a global variable, and make sure that every
| time I do a (make element gi: "a" ... ) that the variable's value is set
| correctly?

No can do. No mutating variables in DSSSL.

                                        Be seeing you,

Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | work out.
