The free (GPL) version of Serna 4.4 is still available:

A little old now, but might be worth evaluating.

DocBook 5 embedded HTML iframe for YouTube with 'allowfullscreen'?

Dear all,

the standard HTML embed code for YouTube videos includes an attribute
setting 'allowfullscreen' , for example:

<iframe width="560" height="315"
src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/KySxOW7vVUc" frameborder="0"
allowfullscreen></iframe>

I included this in a DocBook 5 XML file using an external file and the
?dbhtml-include processor instruction. [see: Stayton book
http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/InsertExtHtml.html]

The processor (Saxon 9) will not accept the bare 'allowfullscreen' as
it expects attribute settings to be in the form 'attribute = value'.

So I just modified the embed HTML to ' allowfullscreen = "true" ' and
it now processes and works correctly.

(Likewise, SlideShare embed HTML includes three attributes '
allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen'.)

Does anyone know the definitive answer about this?

Thx Phillip

Visual DocBook editors

Dear All,

originally I've been searching for any free / low cost visual docbook editor
for rare use by various non-techie people within company as full-featured
product (e.g. Oxygen Author) seems to be an overkill. Unfortunately, there
are just several alternatives, none of them below $50. 

Sadly, DocBook doesn't seem to be offered as online tool for
interactive/collaborative editing in the cloud either. 

For e.g. LaTeX there are nice apps:
https://www.overleaf.com/
https://www.authorea.com/
https://www.sharelatex.com/

Have I overlooked any handy tool or service?

Please share.

Thanks, Jan

line breaks / hyphenation in tables

Dear folks,
 
I faced an issue with hyphenation in table cells. We automatically export strings from a database, that cannot be matched by the FOP hyphenation. I use the precompiled JAR made available through OFFO.
 
The strings in the table cells are kind of: “vvvvv_xxxxx_yyyyyy_zzzzz” with underscores between the substrings and the substrings being of variable length. The problem occurs, that long strings will not break at the cell border and bleed into the next cell.
 
Of course I could use soft hyphens manually, but this is only a work around as the database export of the strings should be done automatically.
 
Is there any docbook attribute or PI, that I could use? Or is it probably best to add a special hyphenation pattern? If so, has anyone of you done this once for FOP? I know that this is maybe not the best list for this. But if anyone had a solution here, why not asking also this list?
 
best regards,
Benjamin

linked on <tag> element

I'm running into something curious with the stylesheets.

Consider these two snippets:

<tag class="attribute" linkend="gloss.href">href</tag>

<tag class="starttag" linkend="gloss.html">html</tag>

If I generate PDF that contains these two cases, the first tag will link correctly (it is hot and points to the
right place), but the second doesn't (there is no link at all). I'm using a recent snapshot, tested with no
customizations, and confirmed that both ids exist.

Looking at the XSL, here are the two cases in the stylesheets (inline.xsl):

    <xsl:when test="$class='attribute'">
      <xsl:call-template name="inline.monoseq"/>
    </xsl:when>

...

    <xsl:when test="$class='starttag'">
      <xsl:call-template name="inline.monoseq">
        <xsl:with-param name="content">
          <xsl:text>&lt;</xsl:text>
          <xsl:apply-templates/>
          <xsl:text>&gt;</xsl:text>
        </xsl:with-param>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:when>
=======
I tried a couple of other classes (pi and element), and it appears that when the case just calls
inline.monoseq, everything is fine, but when the case calls apply-templates inside inline.monoseq,
things go wrong. But it's not clear to me why that should be a problem.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

Thanks,
Dick

Olinks, Assembly, Topics ...

Hello,

 

I used DocBook in the normal way with Books, Sections, Chapters, now I want to switch to Topics and Assemblies.

 

However, I wonder if the olink target data file generation works with an Assembly file as the entry point??

[ann] oXygen XML Editor 17

Hi all,

I am happy to announce that version 17 of oXygen XML editor is generally 
available from our website
http://www.oxygenxml.com

The new oXygen version comes with a huge number of additions, improving 
both functionality and design. You can find the complete release notes 
including a number of short video presentations at:
http://oxygenxml.com/whatisnew17.0.html

If you want to apply changes to all your DocBook files, you can use now 
the XML Refactoring tool. The AutoCorrect and Schematron Quick Fixes can 
be used to easily correct errors to content and structure. The UI 
received a lot of attention including new Retina/HiDPI icons, graphite 
color theme and fully customizable toolbars.

The DocBook to WebHelp transformation optimizes the page loading time 
and provides support for context-sensitive help, SEO resources and LDAP 
authentication. The WebHelp output supports RTL scripts, improves search 
for Japanese content and it can be easily embedded in other web pages.

Please join us to discover the new additions in version 17 in 6 
webinars, starting with an overview of oXygen XML editor 17 which is 
scheduled for Wednesday, May 13 (see the related webinars at the end of 
the page for the other 5 webinars):
http://www.oxygenxml.com/events/2015/webinar_overview_oxygen_17.html

Best Regards,
George

Re: [XSL-FO] CALS table width issue for columns without colwidth

Hi, 

I noticed the same thing - that the auto-adjusting-table-column-width feature in XEP stopped working when I tested to upgrade to 1.76.something. 

IIRC, it had to do with how the colwidth attribute is handled: in 1.76 and later, if colwidth isn’t set for a column, it is automatically assumed that ”1*” should be used, whereas in earlier versions no column width at all is specified in the FO.

I wrote a customization that re-enabled XEP’s auto-column-width feature that we ended up never using since we didn't migrate from 1.75 (if it’s not broken…). But I think I may be able to dig it up again, if anyone should be interested.

Best Regards
/Ola

Dear All,

I've migrated some old customization layer and found it behaves differently
for certain tables.

When no colwidths are specified, I expect all columns occupy just required
width (as in case of HTML tables). But in 1.78.1 such a table is stretched
to the all available width and columns are distributed evenly (XEP). It
looks ugly especially if you have few narrow columns.

Using a diff tool I found it is caused by removing the condition mentioned
in this thread:
https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/docbook-apps/201005/msg00061.html

I fixed it (inserted that condition back) in my customization layer, it work
as expected, but it would be nice to fix/improve the trunk code as well.

Or is it rather XEP bug which doesn't follow specification and renders
tables incorrectly?

Thanks, Jan

Bibliography in DocBook5, continued problems

A month ago I tried airing my bilbiography problem here, but none of the 
few answers gave me *the* hint to a solution. Let me try again:

I create course materials from several docbook.xml files with a 
biliography at the end. My books are in a bibliography file and 
referenced in the material through a bibliography file with empty 
elements in it. Used to work. Now it doesn't.
I have played with various ways of doing the ref to the actual file.
My customization has:

<xsl:param 
name="bibliography.collection">file:///home/nml/.docbook/biblio.xml</xsl:param>

A fragment of the document bilbiography file:

     <bibliomixed id="Xue14"/>
     <bibliomixed id="yan09"/>
     <bibliomixed id="DKnuth86">Donald E. Knuth. <citetitle>Computers and
Typesetting: Volume B, TeX: The Program</citetitle>. Addison-Wesley,
1986.  ISBN 0-201-13437-3.
</bibliomixed>
</bibliography>

The bibliography file with all the books has (fragment)

   <bibliomixed id="Xue14">
     <author>
       <personname>
         <surname>Xue</surname>, <firstname>Qiang</firstname>
       </personname>
     </author>, et al.
     <citetitle>The Definitive Guide to Yii 2.0</citetitle>.
     <publishername>Yii Software LLC</publishername>,
     <pubdate>2014</pubdate>
   </bibliomixed>

The generated output has (fragment)

[Xue14] Error: no bibliography entry: Xue14 found in 
file:///home/nml/.docbook/biblio.xml

[yan09] Error: no bibliography entry: yan09 found in 
file:///home/nml/.docbook/biblio.xml

[DKnuth86] Donald E. Knuth. Computers and Typesetting: Volume B, TeX: 
The Program. Addison-Wesley, 1986. ISBN 0-201-13437-3.

If I take the file statement from file:///home/nml/.docbook/biblio.xml
into my browser it displays the tree structure of the file, so the file 
does exist :)

My makefile:

html:
                 rm -rf site

                                 module.xml > /tmp/docbresolved.xml \
                                 2>./errloglint
                 xsltproc \
                                 --output site/ \
                                 docbook.xsl \
                                 /tmp/docbresolved.xml \
                                 2>./errlogxslt && \
                 tar czf site.tgz site/*
                 echo "site.tgz ready for deployment"
