Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] user-defined text/background color in HTML output

Thank you again, Stefan!

Yes, I solved the problem of extracting the exact color codes using substring-before and substring-after, so this is not a problem.

I will try to explain again.

The default template for <phrase> creates
        <span class="phrase">some text</span>
in HTML output.

If we specify the role "color:red;" for a <phrase>, then by default the following output will be created:
        <span class="color:red;">some text</span>

I should probably avoid creating a new class by specifying phrase.propagates.style=0. Then even with role="color:red;" the output will look like
        <span class="phrase">some text</span>

I can extract this "red" from the role's value, and I don't care about the class name (because I'm not going to define a new style in CSS).
But the question is, how to add a *style* to the <span> using stylesheet customization at all?

Hi Ekaterina,

as far as I understood your original mail, you managed to get your list of values parsed in the case of XSL-FO.

If not, you will have to write some XSLT to parse your pseudo-CSS...

Expect this to be a bit hard -- XSLT (at least, 1.0) is not really made for string manipulation, and adding some error tolerance may bloat your code even more.

Presumably, that parser would be based on first looking for a ";" , splitting that string off, then looking where the ":" within your split-off string is. And then you would continue...

If you are looking for inspiration, in your local DocBook stylesheets installation, take a look at lib/lib.xsl, and specifically the template "pi-attribute". This template solves a similar issue, trying to figure out constructs like 'attribute="value"'.

You can also take a look at my horrible old code to parse things like 'attribute = value;' [1].

You would then have to add in a list of attributes to allow and a list of color names to allow. And then match against those.
