Subject: RE: [docbook] Custom Xref Formatting

I have learned how to call xrefstyles from my customization layer in order to choose a particular style over another.  Here is an example:


<xref linkend="i329971b" xreflabel="1" xrefstyle="figcallout" />


However, the “figcallout” style, which is in my customization layer doesn’t seem to take effect.  Am I using this in the wrong fashion?


            <l:context name="xref-number">

                        <l:template name="figure" text="oooFigure&#160;%n"/>

                        <l:template name="figure" style="figcallout" text="(Figure&#160;%n,&#160;(%t))"/>

Hi David,

Certainly it is possible.  This would be a named xrefstyle, which the stylesheet would handle per your specs.  The only question is where to put the callout number (the second "1" in your example) since xref is an empty element.  It could go into a xreflabel attribute, which would be handled specially for this xrefstyle.  So your code would then look like this:


<xref xrefstyle="figcallout" xreflabel="1"/>

Subject: [docbook] Custom Xref Formatting


I have :

                                    <figure id="i329971b" pgwide="1">




                                                                        <imagedata fileref="file:///c: /0001126C.eps" contentwidth="6.500in" contentdepth="3.386in"/>





And I’m using the following <xref> to reference this figure.


<emphasis role="strong">(<xref xrefstyle="select: label" linkend="i329971b"/>,(1))</emphasis>


This generates an output like this: (Figure 1,(1)) ß the “1” changes the rest of the text is fixed.


Is there a better way to reduce the amount of code used in my <xref> statement?  I’ve tried to add custom formatting but it doesn’t seem to take effect.


What I would like to achieve is something like this (making up my own tag here):

<xref xrefstyle=”template: figurewparens” linkend=”i329971b” value=”1”/>   to output (Figure 1,(1))


Is this possible?
