Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Slide Float for Images and Text


Hi Ray,
I know that this works in HTML:
 
<figure floatstyle="right">
or
<informalfigure floatstyle="right">
 
It should also work with example, informalexample, table, informaltable.
 
But a sidebar in HTML can still be made to float if you use CSS.  The sidebar content is output into a div with class="sidebar", so you could make the CSS work using a float: right CSS property.

>> I cut and pasted the example in "Sidebar example" (under "A sidebar as a side float") from my book into a DocBook 5 test file and processed with Saxon 6.5.5, xsl-1.70.1, and XEP 4.6.  The sidebar example worked for me.  I wasn't in Oxygen, and I wasn't using a customization layer, though.  Did you include the processing instruction to designate a left float? 

 

Sidebar floats have not been implemented in HTML yet.  In the HTML stylesheet, only formal and informalobjects (figure, informalfigure, etc.)  with a floatstyle="left|right" are implemented. <<

 

 

Attempted sidebar floats with the aforementioned Sidebar example script and a nested informalfigure; rendered correctly in PDF transformations. HTML transformation resulted in a right-justified image and no text to the left. I remain unclear on HTML; no side float works with HTML or only informal objects? If the latter, canít get my HTML to transform correctly.
