Subject: RE: DOCBOOK-APPS: No adjustColumnWidths available in MS IE / sett ingclasspath

Ehm, I set the 'use.extensions' and 'tablecolumns.extension' to '1' myself
because I need the extensions...

When I process the docs in 'batch-mode' using Saxon I do not have any
problems because I set the classpath accordingly.

I like the ability to preview in IE so the editors can 'wysiwyg' the docs
they are editing.

So I'm looking for a way to 'instruct' IE to look at the appropriate jar

I have re-set 'use.extensions' and 'tablecolumns.extension' to '0' again so
that IE can display the docs using the XSLT.

But, then I have to maintain two params.xsl files: one for 'IE previewing'
and one for the 'batch-mode processing using Saxon'. Or can this be done
more efficiently? BTW: I really prefer the first option where I 'instruct'
IE to look at the appropriate jar files, but when all else fails...

The Java extension classes won't work in MSIE
because its parser MSXML is not written in Java.

But I'm curious about why you are getting this error message.
The adjustColumnWidths extension function is used only
if the 'use.extensions' and 'tablecolumns.extension'
parameters are both set to nonzero.  The 'use.extensions'
parameter in 1.52.2 is zero by default.  Did someone
edit your params.xsl file?  Setting that parameter
back to zero will avoid the termination that occurs
when it can't find the extension function.
