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

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your help.

I use the 1.76.1 Version.

Kasun pointed out that there are no customizations for <procedure> in Webhelp and I didn’t found any CSS for the class “procedure” in the whole XSL stylesheets .

I think it is the following problem:

The standard stylesheets do not define any CSS for the div class “procedure” but use the default settings of the browser for the included <ol> element. This would give a normal ordered list.

The Webhelp CSS stylesheet on the other hand defines different styles for  <ol> and therefore overwrites the standard behavior. As a side effect the numbers of the list vanish.

I’ve added now a new rule for ol.procedure and I’ve got my numbers back.


Best regards,

Which version of the DocBook XSL stylesheets are you using for webhelp?

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?
