Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Change error message in output for missing xinclude?

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this, but you could customize the scripting to handle unresolved xincludes. You create a template that matches on xi:include to output your own message.  The default message comes from this template that matches on any unrecognized element:
<xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:text>Element </xsl:text>
    <xsl:value-of select="local-name(.)"/>
    <xsl:text> in namespace '</xsl:text>
    <xsl:value-of select="namespace-uri(.)"/>
    <xsl:text>' encountered</xsl:text>
    <xsl:if test="parent::*">
      <xsl:text> in </xsl:text>
      <xsl:value-of select="name(parent::*)"/>
    <xsl:text>, but no template matches.</xsl:text>
  <span style="color: red">
    <xsl:value-of select="name(.)"/>
    <xsl:value-of select="name(.)"/>
You could create a custom template like this:
<xsl:template match="xi:include">
  <span class="EmptyInclude">
    <xsl:text>Currently there is no Data available.</xsl:text>
and perhaps add an xsl:message if you need it.

Phil, David and Markus!
Thanks a lot for your help. I have adjusted my mother file by adding the <xi:fallback> lines. Now the FO/PDF and HTML output looks good and supplies proper information.
I agree to Markus' opinion, that adjusting the scripting (which produces the referenced files) would be even more effective. But we have no influence over it.
Best wishes,

This is very easy:

<xi:include  href="intro.xml" xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
    <para>Currently there is no data available</para>
