DOCX (MS Word) to TEI P5 Ordered Lists Issue

Postby ari » Sat Sep 08, 2012 3:19 pm

After applying the 'DOCX TEI P5' transformation scenario to a DOCX document that contains a list using MS Words default '1. List Number' style the end result is an unordered list.

e.g before transformation:
1. one
2. two
3. three

after transformation:
<list type="unordered">
<item>one</item>
<item>two</item>
<item>three </item>
</list>

is there a specific style that has to be used so that the ordered list type is preserved after the transformation?

Hi,

I applied the built-in transformation called DOCX TEI P5 on a Word document in both Oxygen 13.2 (which includes TEI P5 1.9.1) and Oxygen 14.0 (which includes TEI P5 2.1.0), but I could not reproduce the problem. An ordered list with the default style in Word as the following:

  1. item 1
  2. item 2
  3. item 3

was transformed to a TEI P5 ordered list (<list type="ordered">), and an unordered list with the default style in Word as the following:

  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 3

was transformed to a TEI P5 unordered list (<list type="unordered">).

What Oxygen version do you use? Did you run the built-in transformation DOCX TEI P5 on the Word document or a custom transformation? If you get the problem with this built-in transformation please send us a sample Word (DOCX) file for reproducing the problem.


Thank you,
Sorin

  • item 3

was transformed to a TEI P5 unordered list (<list type="unordered">).

This is correct, however; I was not using the list button in the main menu I was using the a list styles from the Style Pane. I made some tests and found out the following:

• Using the list buttons

Case 1: Simple Unordered List: works fine
Case 2: Simple Ordered List: works fine
Case 3: Nested Unordered List: nesting is lost
Case 4: Nested Ordered List: nesting is lost


This indeed works correctly but if you use this method to create a nested list, the nesting is lost

• Creating Lists Using Styles (Tested on both Word for Mac 2011 and MS Word 2010
* Note: these are all default Word List Styles
Image
Case 1: Simple Unordered List: works fine
Case 2: Simple Ordered List: is converted to an unordered list
Case 3: Nested Unordered List: works fine and nesting is preserved
Case 4: Nested Ordered List:nesting is preserved BUT is converted to an unordered list

Nested Ordered List Example:

code after using oXygen 14's built in transformation:

Code: Select all
<list type="unordered">
                  <item>One<list type="unordered">
                        <item>Two</item>
                        <item>Three</item>
                     </list>
                  </item>
                  <item>Four</item>
               </list>

oXygen 14 and and I used the DOCX TEI P5 built-in transformation

Hi,

Thank you for the details and the images. I submitted a bug report to the TEI Consortium developers who maintain this (and other) TEI related transformations. You can track the bug here. I think the only workaround for you is to create the lists only with the list button in the main menu and avoid list nesting until the bugs are fixed.


Regards,

I have changed the underlying XSL to cope with the list types. The file I used for testing is
at visible http://tei.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/t ... iew=markup

the fixes will appear in oXygen at the next release, or you can check the functionality
using OxGarage (http://oxgarage.oucs.ox.ac.uk:8080/ege-webclient/) which uses the same
code as oXygen.

thanks for the poke - this has not been done right for a long time!
