Subject: Re: [docbook] Best Practise of Referencing Between Modules in Assemblies?

The stylesheets do not currently support such XLink syntax. The current assembly stylesheet would first need to preserve the xml filenames in xml:base attributes when assembling resources into a single DocBook document for processing. That should be done anyway to preserve relative paths to images and such. You can use olinks right now. One of the most frequent uses of olinks is for linking between modular content. Olinks let you avoid hard coding filenames in your links, which can be troublesome to maintain if you rename or move files. Bob Stayton Sagehill Enterprises firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the idea of assemblies is this isolation (with potential for re-use?) I'm surprised that olink ideas weren't embedded.
Their indirection has lots of benefits, though I like Bobs later idea of the processor warning/erroring on missing link targets. regards -- Dave Pawson XSLT XSL-FO FAQ. http://www.dpawson.co.uk
