Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] No css for task/procedure?

There are no CSS customizations for the said in webhelp output. These customizations probably come from chunked xhtml stylesheets. Webhelp extends those stylesheets.

I don't have a solution for this specfic problem, but I have found a tool that helps me debug CSS.  I use the Firebug addon to the Firefox browser.  When turned on, you can position the cursor on an HTML element, and it will show you the CSS styles that are applied, where they are coming from, and which have been overridden.  Very useful for complex CSS setups. I haven't tried it with Webhelp output, though.

I generate Webhelp from my DocBook sources.  Recently, I recognized that my <task><procedure><step> elements are not rendered in Webhelp as a list but as plain text.

The source code of the generated page looks like:


<div class=”procedure”>

  <ol class=”procedure” type=”1”>

    <li class=”step” title=”Step 1”>


I’ve searched all the stylesheets for some CSS files  containing rules for these classes but I didn’t found anything.

Are these missing or do I miss something?
