Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Storing data within Docbook?

I'm transforming some data from an XML format into a Docbook table - but not all of the data in the XML is to be displayed in Docbook. I would, however, like to store it in my Docbook XML - because future transformations would like to read my Docbook XML and they'd need /all/ of the data that went into it. I'd rather not introduce a secondary file for storing the extra data - this would bring complications and fragility. I thought of adding extra columns in the Docbook table and setting them to be hidden - but it doesn't seem to be possible to 'hide' a column easily. Another idea would be to store in in XML comments - which would still be accessible in my transformation as well.
*if* all your cells to be hidden are in the same column <entry role='hidden'> to contain the cells which you do not want to be shown? regards -- Dave Pawson XSLT XSL-FO FAQ. http://www.dpawson.co.uk
