Scheduled transforms?

I need to automatically run a transform on a nightly basis, using an uncrippled version of Saxon. (My xsl makes heavy use of java.lang.Math) 1) Can I do that in oXygen? 2a) If not, can I do it from a shell script that calls oXygen's Saxon library? 2b) Is that even allowed by my license? Worst case I...

Re: Q about node-set comparisons, or casting, or maybe variables

It sounds so simple when you say it... :oops:
I am no longer (as) confused about context-in-predicates, thanks! --alex.

Q about node-set comparisons, or casting, or maybe variables

It would help if I even knew what sort of question it was... could someone please gently explain to me what's happening here: <types good="A"> <type>A</type> <type>B</type> <type>A</type> <type>C</type> </types> <xsl:template match="types"> <xsl:message select="concat('1: Go...

Re: Finding depth in output tree?

Thanks! I've ended up being able to pass a parameter, which gets one added to it when calling apply-templates, but it's comforting to know that i wasn't missing something obvious. --alex.

Finding depth in output tree?

Hi all, count(ancestor-or-self::*) yields your current depth in the input tree -- is there anything similar that will tell you at what level in the output tree the current template is generating tags? Or would this require some sort of precognition in the XSLT processor? (I'm asking on behalf of an ...

Re: Writing void tags in HTML5

OK, my namespaces weren't propagating through template calls correctly, so i was getting a xmlns="" in my head tag that was messing things up. Thanks much for the help. --alex.

Re: SVG CSS validation not working?

Thanks! Some way to switch profiles on a per-css-file basis, instead of just picking one globally, would be nice too, although i'm not sure how such a thing would be done. --alex.

Re: SVG CSS validation not working?

Bump. The CSS Validator profile "SVG" still doesn't recognize "stroke" or "fill" as of v13.2.

Re: Writing void tags in HTML5

Tried that, thanks, but made no difference -- still resulted in stray end tags for <link> and <meta>. Fortunately, method="xml" is working fine. Is there any documentation around on the ugly details of method="xhtml"? My XSLT books are pretty reticent on the subject, and it's alw...

Re: Writing void tags in HTML5

OK, looks like the easiest way to solve this is xsl:result-document method="xml", which turns off Trying-To-Be-Helpful Mode and gives you what you'd expect. So, this works: <xsl:template match="page"> <xsl:result-document method="xml" href="{@href}" omit-xml-d...

Writing void tags in HTML5

Hi all, I'm trying to generate HTML5 (oXygen Developer 13.2, Saxon-EE 9.3.0.5), and my transform is turning void tags into end-tag style, which breaks things like <link/> and <meta/>. Is there an elegant way to get it to stop doing that, or am i stuck with something like <xsl:text disable-output-esc...

Long select attributes of xsl:variable and xsl:value-of

This might be more of a general XML/XSL question than one specific to oXygen, for which i apologize, but is there an aesthetically acceptable way to format long bits of xpath (which can happen a lot in XSLT 2.0) in select attributes, in a way that will be preserved? The XML spec apparently states th...

Simple command macros?

Hi all, The more i use oXygen, the more i find myself repeating certain short chains of commands -- for example, (Save, Apply Transformation Scenario) or (Open, Format and Indent). Is there any way of automating these within oXygen? Failing that, if it's not too off-topic, can anyone recommend a fai...

Thank you. I have to say that, in my so far limited experience with it, this is far and away the most helpful and informative product support forum i've ever had the pleasure to use.

Hello, I set Options > Preferences > CSS Validator > Profile to "SVG", but it still complains about setting things like fill and stroke in shapes. For example, circle { stroke: black; } path { fill: blue; } yields: E [W3C CSS Validator] Context : circle in property : stroke Unrecognized - ...

Re: Help file font size

Same problem, on WinXP SP3, oXygen 10.3, and IE8 which doesn't work at all but crashes silently w/out activating the Windows crash reporting mechanism. Nice.
