Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] tagged and accessible PDF document with DocBook
Hi Holger,There is a good reason simplelist and segmentedlist do not use fo:list-block. That element can only format two columns, but both of these kinds of lists can have any number of entries in a row, so a table is required. In the case of simplelist, the flat list of members can be laid out in any number of columns. In the case of segmentedlist, a seglistitem can have any number of seg children.

Hi there, I started on writing a specification document that maps the DocBook elements to the necessary PDF structure elements. Well, I started with FOP (based of PDF v1.5) as basis, but I think that the other processors act the same way. It would be great if someone familiar with XEP, Antenna, DocMill, etc. could have a look at the document and give some feedback. The document can be found over here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DrADbdNjFEeXBv5n7LNIBrKsI1Kl-oqY5jkN-U8K5p8/edit?usp=sharing The document is not yet finished but it is a good starting point for implementing tagged structure elements in the DocBook -> FO transformation process. So, if someone likes to add some content, please contact me (via this mail address) for edit-privileges. During my time writing this document I came across several 'anomalies' of the DocBook XSL transformation that I also would like to discuss with you: The list types 'simplelist' and 'segmentedlist' don't generate fo:list-block-code content. simplelist uses a table or inline element for rendering. I think this will not be that easy to tag in PDF. Maybe the implementation could be changed? In the case of segmentedlist there is fo:block code generated. Maybe the reuse of quandaset code could help in that case. Any feedback is welcome! Thanks to Tony and Katharina providing me further information! Thx + Bye, HolgerGesendet: Dienstag, 04.

If any, that should come from your source XML and be carried over to the fo, then PDF.Exactly. Now, what I need is a mapping from DocBook elements to fo, for the three FO processors. Then I can implement it in the XSL. If someone were to generate that spec, it would speed up the process greatly.
