Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] [HELP] How can I get rid of the output of the <revhistory /> tag in the EPUB output

More details are needed to determine the problem.

What numbered version of DocBook XSL are you using?

Are you using DocBook 5 and the the docbook-ns stylesheets, or DocBook4 and the non-namespaced stylesheets?

Are you processing a book or article?

Is the revhistory element located in an info element or in the body of the document? (revhistory can appear in a para, for example)

Are you using the epub or epub3 stylesheet?

How are you importing it and customizing it

(sorry, I don't have time to reverse engineer your whole build setup).

Subject: [docbook-apps] [HELP] How can I get rid of the output of the <revhistory /> tag in the EPUB output

Hi all,

I am trying to get rid of the <revhistory /> tag in the EPUB output here:


see below for more information - any help will be appreciated.

This seems to be misleading:
http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/FormatRevhistory.html :


A quick way to turn off revhistory from output is to define an empty template for it in a customization layer. The following example will turn it off for all
elements that contain a revhistory:

<xsl:template match="revhistory" mode="titlepage.mode"/>

Please see below for the conversation log. Any help will be appreciated.

<rindolf> Hi all.
<rindolf> I cannot seem to know how to get rid of <revhistory>...</revhistory>

<dcramer_> rindolf, That would be via the titlepage stuff...
<dcramer_> http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/HTMLTitlePage.html
<rindolf> dcramer_: did you look at
https://github.com/shlomif/Human-Hacking-Field-Guide/blob/master/HHFG/text/docbook-epub-preproc.xslt ?
<dcramer_> See how <revhistory> is commented out in the titlepage spec?
<dcramer_> What you do is edit the titlepagespec, then generate a new
titlepage.xsl from it:
http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/TitlePageNewElems.html <dcramer_> Which you
then import into your customization layer. <dcramer_> rindolf: Give that a
shot. If you're still having trouble, try the docbook-apps mailing list.
<rindolf> dcramer_: OK. <rindolf> dcramer_: isn't there an easier way?
<dcramer_> Well, that's the right way :-) <rindolf> dcramer_: why doesn't
<xsl:template match="revhistory" mode="titlepage.mode"/> <rindolf>  work?
<dcramer_> I'd have to dig in to see what template is generated by the
titlepage mechanism. But on the list Bob could answer that off the top of his
head I bet. <dcramer_> The template spec stuff isn't really that hard.
<dcramer_> 1. Edit the titlepage.xml provided with the dist to remove
<revhistory> <dcramer_> 2. Generate titlepage.xsl by just running a provided xslt over the edited spec. <dcramer_> 3. Import result into your customization
layer. <dcramer_> Easier in a way.
