Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Does dockbook.xsl covers the whole?
Hi Sanjaya,OK, can you clarify where you are applying the CSS? Is it your intention to style the XML source directly using CSS, or to use CSS to style the HTML output from DocBook XSL? When you say "further styled", I presume you mean the HTML.----- Original Message -----From: Sanjaya LiyanageTo: Bob StaytonCc: Docbook AppsSent: Sunday, February 20, 2011 9:24 PMSubject: Re: [docbook-apps] Does dockbook.xsl covers the whole?Hi Bob,
Thank you for the reply.Yes it is true that almost every docbook element has been styled by docbook XSL.But my this effort is to style them more using css.I feel that most of the docbook elements can further be styled so that the output of docbook will be a more clear and nice one.As an examples
- <title> elements in different classes can further be styled
- we can style <title> and <subtitle> in different ways to show their difference
I have not tested many docbook XMLs.I think there can be more elements that can be styled further.
- <sec1>,<sec2>,<sec3>,etc.. can be further styled
- <caption> element can be styled differently
- <code> elements can be further styled as well.

Hi,I'm not sure how useful this exercise is. I will put forth the proposition that all DocBook elements except some metadata elements in info are already styled by DocBook XSL. Metadata elements are not automatically styled because metadata is used for different purposes by different people. Any elements outside of info that are not styled should be in the list of bug reports on the DocBook SourceForge site. At the moment, I don't think there are any reports of that nature.Also, the DocBook XSL stylesheets already have a template that flags any elements that it encounters for which it otherwise has no template. See the template in fo/docbook.xsl starting with:<xsl:template match="*">...That template will be applied by the XSLT processor when no other template matches an element in the document. It issues an error message and inserts a copy of the element tags in red in the output.Have you seen any DocBook elements that are not styled?----- Original Message -----From: Sanjaya LiyanageTo: Docbook AppsSent: Friday, February 18, 2011 9:02 PMSubject: [docbook-apps] Does dockbook.xsl covers the whole?Hi dev,
I am trying to find the elements of docbook xmls which haven't styled by including docbbok.xsl in my test.xsl.Does it enough to see any kind of styling for any kind of element in the xml or are there any other xsl files that I must include to see different kind of styling for any other element?Also where can I find some sample docbook xmls which include most of possible elements in it?Thank you very much.
