Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: Transforming SGML
/ Josef Karthauser <firstname.lastname@example.org> was heard to say: | Imagine that I define a new element, <xequation> some tex equation </xequation>. | Is it possible to use DSSSL to rewrite this as: | <inlineequation> <graphic fileref="foo"> </graphic> </inlineequation> | and have the rest of the stylesheets process the inlineequation in | the normal way? You could write a stylesheet to do that, but you couldn't also process the result with the standard DocBook stylesheets in the same pass. You'd have to implement a two-pass process. | I haven't got my head around DSSSL enough yet to know whether this is | possible or not. It's technically possible with the DSSSL standard, but not with Jade. (Jade doesn't implement the transformation language portion of DSSSL.) Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <email@example.com> | Any bureaucracy reorganized to http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | enhance efficiency is Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | indistinguishable from its | predecessor.
