Nit picking, use semantic names for the attribute?
I may be wrong here.

Nathalie Sequeira on April 07, 2010 5:31 PM recommended the following

<emphasis role="semantic_function_of_the_emphasis">some text</emphasis>

I thought that this was way cool. Then if I wanted to change the how the
semantic was displayed, just change the CSS.

Humm. What am I missing ?

This is my disagreement with how you have done it.

I do it differently is the best way I can say this.
1. I didn't know I could set parameters on the command line :-)
2. I always use an 'import' method to set my parameters

Create a normal stylesheet
First statement inside xsl:stylesheet
<xsl:import href='ypl/doc_book/xsl_1.75.2/html\chunk.xsl'

the set your parameters
<xsl:param name='emphasis.propagates.style' select='1'/>
<xsl:param name='html.stylesheet'


Note the quoted css file
Note the forward / not \

I don't know anything about XSL. I will add it to the stuff to go learn.

Is putting parameters in XSL just a best practice thing ?

It makes sense. This way you have all your styling knobs in one spot
as opposed to 2 different spots.

Thanks for the help.
