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

To extend Dave's idea, you may want to use profiling to filter the data that appears when you transform your docbook into something else:
I don't think applying role=hidden automatically works, right? Wouldn't one need to create a preprocessing step or apply profiling for the role to operate to limit the data that appears?

But the role attribute is available for you to apply your own meaning to, and you could use it on any element to organize your data such that you can display the desired information when transforming the docbook into ordinary outputs, and then still use the same original docbook file for input to some other downstream process.

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,

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?
