Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Draft mode: Missing image error affects all PDF builds

Which XSL-FO processor are you using? I'm guessing those error messages are coming from the XSL-FO processor and not the XSL stylesheet.

Setting draft.mode to anything but 'no' causes the stylesheet to load into the XSL-FO file the extra page-masters that are needed for displaying the draft watermark image in the background. If there are no draft instances, those page-masters are never used, so there should not be such an error reported. I believe it was FOP that checked for the existence of the image when the XSL-FO file is parsed, not when the image is used. I consider that to be a bug in the XSL-FO processor, not the stylesheet. Other processors don't report it.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Draft mode: Missing image error affects all PDF builds

Using the watermark feature for draft docs:
My book has a  status="draft" attribute.

In my PDF customization layer I enter the following parameters:

<xsl:param name="draft.mode">maybe</xsl:param>
<xsl:param name="draft.watermark.image">../images/draft.png</xsl:param>

Problem: Error messages about missing draft.png are now generated when I
export *any* book to PDF, regardless of whether a status attribute is set on
the book.

This is obviously caused by the graphic not being available in a common
folder accessible to all.
But I think this is a bug. The errors should not be generated if draft mode
has not been turned on in the source XML, by using status="draft".
