Re: Mapping DITA <image> to WebHelp <img>

Thanks Sorin. For the record, using <img> for SVG is preferable to <embed>. I experimented with both elements where I'd put a hyperlink on an SVG icon. For WebHelp and WebHelp Mobile, only the top half of the SVG was rendered with <embed> and the hyperlink didn't work. With <img>, the entire SVG ico...

Markup for link redirection

I'd like to know if there are standard elements and attributes in DITA 1.2 that will produce the following HTML coding, which is an auto-redirect: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=../gui/PDF-pagemaster.svg"/> Or, can this only be achieved by customizing stylesheets?

Re: DITA EPUB transformation not creating images

The WebHelp and WebHelp Mobile transformations treat SVG <object> elements as images, and correctly copy those to an "images" folder. EPUB transformations should be no different in this behavior. I'll post a request for this feature.

Are there any plans to develop Android tablet (and/or iPad) apps for oXygen (is it even possible?). I anticipate XML authoring could become very slick if there is multi-touch functionality (I'm thinking 'drag-and-drop' or 'tap' XML tagging).

Re: Spaces automatically added between bibliography elements

Radu,
Thanks - that worked. Perhaps the "format and indent on open" should be checked off by default. I can't see what function it might serve, but those who need it should turn it on (rather than those who don't need it, turn it off).
