Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Docbook images/graphics. Where do you keep them?
Actually, I do most of my work on Linux, but it is not shared so I have administrative privileges on it. We have a property in our build files that specifies the path to the directory containing the graphics. If it is empty, nothing is done, if it is populated, that directory is created in the result directory and then the contents are copied. Since it is an Ant build file and we are using a copy task in ant, we can actually be very specific, not just creating the directory and copying all contents, but specifying that only the PNG and GIF images be copied for HTML delivery (which can be a little tricky since you have to allow for PNG and png and GIF and gif, due to some Windows tools producing the upper case suffix -- the Linux tools seem to be more consistent about the use of lower case). Graphics that are part of the document are delivered into the directory specified by the user in the Ant property. The style assets are delivered in a different directory.

We always use the /styles/... type of path on our production pages that are aimed at the Web. That way if I open the file on my Windows system the styles are available, too. Or Linux. Makes perfect sensee... unless you aren't administrator, but then I guess you could use an alias. That makes it work for testing prior to building. Larry, does your 'build' take the form of that mentioned by Dean, to scan source XML for graphics etc and define the collection that way? Then that is the build target for the site or CD... which does leave a problem how you recognised 'document specific' graphics? Another attribute to separate the two? regards -- Dave Pawson XSLT XSL-FO FAQ. http://www.dpawson.co.uk
