Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Chunking Based on Attribute

Thanks Bob (and to David Cramer for the dbhtml solution).


I have a problem with DB 5, however. The generated XML TOC file from maketoc.xsl doesn’t seem to be a valid DB5 file. Looking at the latest stylesheets, there doesn’t seem to be any logic for generating the new <tocdiv> element. I get only <tocentry> and that’s it.


Here’s a sample of what I get:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<toc role="chunk-toc">
<tocentry linkend="WhatsNew"><?dbhtml filename="WhatsNew.html"?>
<tocentry linkend="Welcome"><?dbhtml filename="Welcome.html"?>
<tocentry linkend="IntroductionArticle"><?dbhtml filename="IntroductionArticle.html"?>



Maybe I’m not setting a parameter correctly? But I don’t see how to nest TOC elements when only a <toc> and <tocentry> elements are generated.


Any ideas?

There is no direct support in the HTML chunking stylesheet to chunk based on attributes.  However, you could implement something like this using a two-step process.  The chunking stylesheet supports chunking based on an external chunk TOC, as described in the section titled "Manually control chunking" in this reference:



You could create a custom XSL that extracts such a TOC from your document based on your role attribute, and then use that TOC to chunk the document in the second step.

Sorry if this is explained elsewhere, but is there a way I can chunk sections based on their attribute, regardless of how deeply they are nested?


For example, I want to chunk all sections that have a role=”chunkHere”, but these sections might appear at many nested levels. I don’t want to chunk sections that have no such attribute, regardless of their nesting level.


Does that make sense? Thanks for any help you can offer.
