Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Adding attributes/parameters to the "<para>" template?

Something like this?

<xsl:template match="para[@pm='+++']">

<xsl:param name="pm" select="self::*[@pm][1]/@pm"/>


<xsl:value-of select="$pm"/></xsl:apply-templates>




If <para> has no pm attribute this template would be ignored.

<xsl:template match="strict_para[@pm] != 'xxx' ">


The above would catch any use of <strict_para> that didn't have an attribute pm which equals 'xxx'.

A good place to read up on XSLT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XSLT

Hope that helps,

David White

Subject: [docbook-apps] Adding attributes/parameters to the "<para>" template?

I am having a hard time trying add a "para template" in my "customization" layer.
I would want to add an parameter to the para template.  This parameter would
contain a string that would be prepended to the paragraph.
So if I had in my xml file this ...
<para pm="+++ ">Hi there </para>
... output would be in html something like ...
<p>+++ Hi there</p>
Also how would I make the template use a default value if the attribute/parameter
was left out?  Also how could I make another template say ... strict_para ... that
would cause an error if the parameter was left out?
I guess I should get a book on xsl ... right?  or is xstl?
