Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Assigning an ID and a class to <mediaobject> HTML output

Hi David,

Regarding a class attribute, the <div> element output for a mediaobject has a generic class="mediaobject" attribute. You can modify that by customizing a template in mode="class.value" as described here:


I looked into the id issue, and there is a param named 'generate.id.attributes' in the DocBook HTML stylesheet. But it only applies to container elements and not mediaobject.

In your case, I would suggest creating a template in mode="class.attribute" instead of "class.value", and have it generate the id attribute as well as the class attribute. Something like this:

<xsl:template match="d:mediaobject" mode="class.attribute">
 <xsl:attribute name="class">
     [your logic for generating a class value]
 <xsl:if test="@id">
   <xsl:attribute name="id">
     <xsl:value-of select="@id"/>

Subject: [docbook-apps] Assigning an ID and a class to <mediaobject> HTML output

I would like to use a Javascript fancyzoom() with images in a Docbook
HTML output. Basically, all the images would float right and be of equal
width, and could be clicked to zoom.

My problem is that setting xml:id='theimagename' and role='thumbnail' in
mediaobject (or imageobject and imagedata) doesn't seem to add an id or
a class to the HTML output. Is there some way I can explicitly tell the
transformation sheet that I want the id and class in the output?
