Subject: What is best practice for keeping what information in what DocBook file?
Hi all, what is best practice for DocBook XSL stylesheets when one want to handle his/her corporate documents, be it a requirment specification, a user manual, a slide presentation or any other corporate artefact. Is it the goal to have ONE customized DocBook XSL stylesheet for all kind of corporate documents? Or is it the goal to create customized DocBook XSL stylesheets for each kind of corporate document? It's often that two parties are involved in a document. You as the corporation AND the customer both having their own information like a logo and a copyright note which goes into the title page and/or header and footer. What is best practice for keeping this information? Is it the DocBook XML or the DocBook XSL document? The way I've practiced so far, was to keep all content in the DocBook XML file and use ONE customized DocBook XSL which catch all those information from the DocBook XML. But a bitter taste is, that I carry some information like the corporate or customer logo redundantly in each DocBook XML file. Any new DocBook XML document would need to fill in these information. Doesn't such information belong to the style, because it's so static? On the other hand that would mean that for each new customer I had to create a separate customized DocBook XSL stylesheet. Any hints to clarify my confusion are welcome :) Regards, Darya ___________________________________________________________ Telefonate ohne weitere Kosten vom PC zum PC: http://messenger.yahoo.de
