Hi Shafie,
 
I am using XXE 5.1.0, I am using Webworks ePublisher for generating HTML help files, but iam not getting the tables embeded in the xml files in the HTML output.

No, you don't need to contact the ZZZ organization to get this fixed, 
because it's a bug in XMLmind XML Editor.

Your original:

<xsd:pattern value="[+-]?\d+\.\d{2}"/>

was just fine.

* Current XMLmind XML Editor does *not* require you to escape "+" as 
"\+" in "[+-]?"

* Current XMLmind XML Editor indeed requires you to escape "-" as "\-" 
in "[+-]?". This is clearly a bug as the XML schema specs says:

---
The '-' character is a valid character range only at the beginning or 
end of a positive character group.
---

See http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#regexs

This bug should be fixed in the next release of XMLmind XML Editor (v6.2).

XML Source editor in XXE 6.0

Hello Hussein,

 

Is there a setting in Preferences needed to expose the XML Source editing tool? For some reason the option has disappeared from my View menu. I’ve installed and uninstalled the add-on, there are no error messages during startup, and I’ve none of my own addons installed, yet the option has just vanished. Can’t imagine what I’ve done.

 

Thanks,

Jeff.

--> My answer assumes that you are talking typing text in XMLmind XML 
Editor and not about converting your XML document to formats such as 
PDF, RTF, etc.

If you were talking about converting XML documents then please do not 
hesitate to send another support request to xmleditor-support <at> xmlmind.com.

--> I don't have a Polish keyboard so I cannot reproduce your problem by 
press "Alt Gr c".

However, I used a French keyboard and pressed "Alt Gr $" to get ¤ and 
pressed "Alt Gr E" to get €. It worked fine.

I used XMLmind XML Editor v6.1 to perform the above tests on Windows 7 
with latest Java 1.8 runtime (and also Windows XP with latest 1.7 
runtime). It worked fine in all cases.

XInclude in XHTML5 and XHTML1

Regarding XInclude, then - for some reason - support in XHTML 1.x documents is disabled by default. However it is simple to enable, as described in the release notes for XMLmind XMLeditor version 5.2.[1] When enabled, it seems like the editor only support simple inclusion/refernce. That is: the “XPointer element() scheme” is not supported. Hence, it is only possible to copy references for which there already is a conforming id attribute.

But for XHTML5 documents, the same release notes states that XHTML5 doesn’t really support XInclude, only to add, in a parenthesis, “(well, at least, the XPointer element() scheme)”. [1]

Why is that?

Why not support the same simple refence that works in XHTML 1.x documents. The lack of a XHTML5 dtd should not matter. Because HTML5 spec says that the id attribute is of type ID.[3] Thus XML processors really SHOULD assign ID type to HTML5’s id attribute. As well, the specification of ‘xml:id version 1.0’ states that it is really up to the application how it performs ID type assignment,[4] and it seems reasonable to think the same way about “IDness” for id in XHTML5 documents.

For xml:id there is no real link between XML validation and ID type assignment. By contrast, in XMLmind XMLeditor there is, it seems, a link between validating the document according to DTD and ID type assignement - which is OK, I guess, for XHTML 1.x documents. But it seems that id in XHTML5 documents should be more or less handled the same way that xml:id is treated in e.g. DocBooc - it should not be tied to DTD but should rather be linked to the namespace.

Copy/Paste as reference not working in XHTML files.

The tutorial for modular documents says: [1] «XMLmind XML Editor allows to include in document B some content found in document A. This feature works by using a special command called Copy As Reference and then by using one of the normal Paste commands.» Same page further it says that «Internally, XMLmind XML Editor uses standard mechanisms, e.g. conref for DITA and XInclude for DocBook».

(Since, confref only works in DITA, consider what I say to not relate to DITA.)

My problem: The feature does not work in XHTML documents as the functionality seems hardcoded to the presence of xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook" on the root element. E.g. if one changes the namespace of a <html> element to <html xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook">, then the functionality - sort of - becomes available.

My proposal would be

  1. to make XInclude the (default) embedding function in any document (except in DITA documents).
  2. to allow the very ‘Copy as Reference’ to command to function in any file where ID atributes can be found. Or, if not in any file, then at least in XHTML files - note in that regard that per XHTML5, then id attributes are considered to be of type ID - this is specified in the HTML5 spec by reference to the latest version of the DOM specification. (The sensible thing would be to just consider any id attribute to be of type ID, regardless of presence of DTD or schema reference or not.)
  3. to allow content to be be included in any XML file (or at least in XHTML files) via <xi:include href="foo" /> or <include xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude" href="foo" /> (except, again, in DITA documents, where you use the DITA method).

Use cases for supporting XInclude in XHTML that I see and I care for:

  1. Simple previewing of/working with multifile 'books' in XHTML format.
  2. Simple conversion to ePUB 3.
  3. Simple conversion to "flattened" XHTML files (where the included files have been made part of the 'mother document').
  4. A good editor for working with tools such as Prince XML (a PDF-formatter with built-in support for XInclude).
  5. Users that would like to embed files can use XHTML instead of first learning DocBook.

coding cover pages for .pdf output

Thought I'd seen some information about this, but now I can't find it … I'm usually aiming to deliver WebHelp based on DITA source, which works like a charm. Every now and then (particularly for reviews) I need to output .pdf instead. I can then edit the result with Acrobat Pro and add a cover page (corporate logo, product-family graphic and so on) I've prepared as a .pdf outside XML Mind. Can you suggest a more integrated approach, or shall I carry on the way I've started?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

XXE 6.1: permissions problem while opening ftp:// file

Dear M. Shafie,

 

Some of our XML files are accessed  from an FTP location for viewing and editing. This seems to be somehow broken since XXE-6.1, which complains about permission issues on file’s opening:

 

 

However, the correct write permissions are granted for this location.

The same file at the same location can be opened and saved with XXE-5.7 and XXE-5.9.

 

Many thanks for your feedback,

Philippe.

XXE-6 top toolbars

In XXE 6.x the top toolbars span several lines. In XXE 5.x all the 
toolbars appear in the single same line. In wide screens the new layout 
means some waste of vertical space.

Is it possible to customize the XXE 6.x GUI in order to recover the 
former XXE 5.x toolbar layout?

Thanks.

Sure.

Yes, I tried to explain you this in my previous email.

Precedence low to high: parameters in the XSLT stylesheet (stock or 
customized), parameters in XXE's "Convert Document" dialog box and, in 
the case of xxetool, -p command-line parameters.

Reference:

It's quite simple: specify "-p page.type A3" (among other command-line 
parameters) in the .bat, ant, makefile, whatever script file invoking 
xxetool.
