Subject: RE: [xliff] Syntext and indentations

Hi Yves,

As you probably know, space is irrelevant in XML. But the prescribed way to make it relevant is with xml:space (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml11/#sec-white-space). I'm not sure if Syntext honors xml:space, but in the distant past I've had success with other XML editors by adding a doctype subset and added xml:space (preserve) attributes. Also, if there's a default XSLT stylesheet Sytnext uses, you can set the <xsl:preserve-space elements="olink"> element.

I'll try to goof with this a bit and see if I can get it to work in Sytext.

Subject: [xliff] Syntext and indentations

Hi everyone,

I'm using the open-source Syntext editor to edit the 2.0 draft files and I'm running into a problem: Syntext seems to be automatically trying to do some "pretty printing" when it saves the files. For example a section that is originally like this:

<para><emphasis>Used in:</emphasis> <olink targetdoc="../elements/inline/ph.xml" targetptr="ph">      <code>&lt;ph&gt;</code></olink>.</para>

(no line breaks)

Ends up like this:

<para><emphasis>Used in:</emphasis>
 <olink targetdoc="../elements/inline/ph.xml" targetptr="ph">

(extra line breaks and indentation)

This is a problem because it adds at least one space between <olink> and <code> and result in weirdly spaced links in the PDF/HTML output.

Does anyone knows how to turn off this auto-indentation feature in Syntext? I haven't find the option, and I can't believe there is no way to not do this.

Obviously I'm guessing Rodolfo could come up with a clever extra XSLT step to remove the extra white spaces between <olink> and <code> when doing the merge, but it would be better to avoid the problem altogether.
