Subject: Few DocBook queries and DSSSL
Hi, I'm not sure if these questions are appropriate in this forum. I'm pretty new to DocBook. I understood the concept well. I had a few questions. I'm trying to make a HTML -> DocBook converter. Basically, it will take an HTML file and try to generate DocBook content. I know it may sounds dumb but thats what I'm trying to make. So how do I bring structure ( DocBook ) to an unstructured document ( HTML )? While I was learning about the formatting of the DocBook content I came across DSSSL. I got many resources online but all of them have a very steep learning curve. Are there any simple books / online tuts that I may have missed? One problem that I'm not able to solve is, I'm trying to change the way title of my book is formatted. So I made a .dsl file and put the following content: ( element ( bookinfo title ) ( make paragraph font-family-name: "Times New Roman" space-before: 10pt space-after: 10pt font-size: 36pt ( process-children ) ) ) But it simply doesn't show up. Infact the change reflects in all titles except the cover page. The DocBook code is as follows: <book id="my-new-book" lang="en"> <bookinfo> <title>This is the title of the book!</title> <date>12th August 2007</date> <releaseinfo>Released by test!</releaseinfo> <authorgroup> <author> <othername>t</othername> <surname>stest</surname> <firstname>ftest</firstname> </author> </authorgroup> </bookinfo> <chapter id="chapter1"> <title>This is a title of chapter 1</title> <sect1 id="sample-sect-1-1"> <title>This is some text inside a section</title> <para>This is a para inside a section</para> </sect1> </chapter> <chapter id="chapter2"> <title>This is a title of chapter 2</title> <sect1 id="sample-sect-1-2"> <title>This is some text inside a section</title> <para>This is a para inside a section</para> </sect1> </chapter> </book> -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/Few-DocBook-queries-and-DSSSL-tf4527206.html#a12917469 Sent from the docbook General mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
