Subject: Re: XHTML and chunking parameters

Hash: SHA1

/ Geoff Leach <gl@cs.rmit.edu.au> was heard to say:
| The parameters I had in mind when I originally asked about whether
| it was appropriate to set them in the html2xhtml translation are
| chunker.output.doctype-public
| chunker.output.doctype-system
| chunker.output.encoding
| to be set (respectively) to
| '-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN'
| 'http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd'
| 'UTF-8'

Ah, I see.

| In my original post I was seeking clarification rather than suggesting
| that the chunking parameters should be set in the html2xhtml
| translation. I'm clearer about it now (I think) - xsl:output acts as a
| global default, which can be overriden by the chunker parameters. Is
| that right?

Yes. Here's the scoop. There's no way to set the value of xsl:output
attributes with parameters, you have to hard code them into the
stylesheets. So the default is not to output any doctype.

The chunker parameters exist to make it easier to output a doctype on
chunking extensions that accept these parameters.

But in the XHTML stylesheets, the xsl:output attributes are already
set and there seems to be no need to set the chunker parameters. If
you want to override them, you can still set them to something else.

So it's a little inconsistent, but I think that's OK.

                                        Be seeing you,
