Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] olink to a document only

You are correct, you can't point to just the document currently.

I think there is only one situation where omitting the targetptr attribute
would work. If the baseuri of  that <document> element in the olink database
file ends in .html or .htm, then it could be used alone.  Otherwise I think
the stylesheet should still generate an error because it would not have
enough information to resolve the link. For example, a baseuri for chunked
output would more likely be a directory name, and one cannot assume that an
index.html will be there.

Subject: [docbook-apps] olink to a document only


Is there a way to create an olink to a document but *not* to a specific
part of it.
I would like to write something like:
<olink targetdoc="idref">See reference doc</olink>
So I would get:
<a href="../refdocs/ref.html">See reference doc</a>

I do not want to point to a specific anchor into the document. But not
setting the targetptr attribute (or setting it to an empty string) leads
to errors.

Any idea ?
