Subject: How do I highlight inline text ?
Hi, I am a newbie in getting DocBook XML to generate HTML. I have it working and documented what the processing elements are at a high level as well as detailed steps for installation in Windows for newbies at http://www.ypl.com//build_windows_machines/install_applications/doc_book_to_ html/html_deep/index.html Perhaps this exists somewhere already and I just did not find it ? Request help in figuring out how to highlight inline text. It seems that the way to go is to use something like <emphasis role="yellow">some text</emphasis>. I got the idea from 1) The sql syntax example at http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/UsingCSS.html 2) The following email from the docbook-apps mailing list Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Coloring body text portions - May 18, 2004 3:54:58 pm For HTML output, it is easier to export a class attribute on some HTML element and then write a CSS stylesheet to apply styles such as color. A few elements like <phrase> and <emphasis> can export their role attribute value as a class attribute if you set the right stylesheet parameter. If the way to go is to follow the example in sagehill.net, then request help w/ Question: What should be the CSS stylesheet entry ? Question: What should I add to the stylesheet customization layer ? Question: Perhaps the above entire approach is inappropriate and another approach should be used Pontification type of question: It seems like highlighting text w/ color should be a standard feature ? Since its not, I am missing the mind set associated w/ DocBook. What is the mind set w/ which to approach DocBook and its processing chain such that it makes sense that color highlighting is not built in ? If the above does not make sense, I have attempted to be more elaborate at http://www.ypl.com//build_windows_machines/install_applications/doc_book_to_ html/html_deep/ch08.html If I have violated some of the mailing list norms, please let me know so that I can correct them.
