Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] How to specify rel="canonical in Docbook and conversion for HTML

Hi Lars,
The short answer is no, the stylesheets don't do anything with link rel="canonical".  The reference is to the Google webmaster site.  Is this feature specific to Google?
DocBook XSL does support customization of the <head> element by customizing the utility template named 'user.head.content', as described here:
That could be used to generate another <link> element.  I'm not sure where you would stash that canonical URL in your document, though.

a while ago the big search engines introduce the rel="canonical attribute in the header to identify the "main" content webpage, especially useful if you have a chunks version and a single page version of your HTML content.

This is something which should go into the <head> section and may be different per DocBook document. It would look like the following:

link rel="canonical" href=""http://www.example.com/product.php?item=swedish-fish">http://www.example.com/product.php?item=swedish-fish" />

Details can be found here:


Is this available in Docbook and considered by the XLST Stylesheets?

Best regards, Lars
