Subject: customize xslt or customize the schema?
hi, I first posted this on docbook list; hopefully this is the appropriate place now. Sorry if you get duplicates... Hi, I'm trying to decide how best to solve a problem I have with some tech documentation. The doc is originally in LaTeX and I'm converting to DocBook 5 (using plasTeX). The doc contains both Figure and 'Output' elements. When rendered, a Figure is numbered as chapter.figure The 'Output' element is like a Figure, but appears only in Examples, and is numbered as chapter.example.output There are of course references to both Figures and Outputs. Which way should I go for this situation--add a new element by customizing the schema or customize the xsl stylesheets to use different numbering and gentext? I can differentiate between the two with xpath. (something like this: chapter//figure versus chapter/example/figure@remap=Output) thanks for any insights. --Tim Arnold
