Subject: Re: xml:base and stylesheets

/ Elliotte Harold <elharo@metalab.unc.edu> was heard to say:
| Thanks. I am indeed using the snapshot because the 169.1 doesn't work wioth
| DocBook 5.  Where"s the code to resolve this hiding? I'm now seeing output
| like this:

I've spent some time today banging my head against base-uris,
xml:base, and @fileref. I've come to the conclusion that the 5.0
stylesheets do the wrong thing. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I know
what the right thing is or how to do it.

I'm starting to think that the only practical answer for dealing with
file: URIs and XIncluded/xml:base'd content may simply be to do a
second pass over the document.

Trying to calculate the right relative URIs on the rendering pass
looks impractical. Maybe the thing to do is format the whole document,
work out what the actual base URI of the result is going to be, and go
through the (XHTML or FO) document fixing them.

Of course, how that interacts with chunking is bound to be a joy.

And to make the situation even more interesting, I'd like to improve
the way that the multi-pass stuff works anyway.

                                        Be seeing you,
