How to enable custom CSS properties in CSS validation

My CSS stylesheets make use of some CSS3 paged media module properties and selectors as well as a properties that are specific to my software. When editing my CSS in Oxygen, I get a ton of errors and warnings because of this. It makes CSS validation not useful. I saw your documentation for adding cu...

Re: XHTML5 Pretty Print

Thanks, Adrian. I guess I didn't realize <section> is mixed. Seems strange to make it so (but out of our hands). Your suggestion works perfectly, though. I could set this particular project to use Project Options and turn off Schema Aware Indent for just XHTML5-based projects, right? I'll give that ...

XHTML5 Pretty Print

Hi, I'm trying out some XHTML5 workflows, coming from DocBook. When I work in DocBook, the pretty print (Format and Indent) feature is incredibly helpful for navigating my documents. However, I'm struggling with the output of this same feature in XHTML5. Many block elements are being running togethe...

adding 2 css stylesheets in DocBook to EPUB

In order to keep my files simple, I'd like to add 2 stylesheets to my epub (generated from DocBook via the ANT transform). One stylesheet will override a few lines in the much larger second (this keeps me from having to maintain 2 complete stylesheets). I know how to get my custom stylesheet into th...

Re: "missing cover" when creating Kindle file from epub

Thank you for your help, Dan. Implementing your suggestion did fix the ambiguity, but it replaced the xhtml namespace in the meta tag with the OPF namespace, which still breaks the Kindle conversion. However, I was able to get it to work by changing the xsl:element tag for meta to <opf:meta> (as you...

Re: "missing cover" when creating Kindle file from epub

Hi Radu. Jason Zech here. I see how your workaround would be effective, but since most of my projects involve a number of people on a number of remote computers over SVN, can you suggest a workaround that doesn't involve customizing the local build.xml file on every computer? Is there an XSL customi...

Re: Can I use entities and xincludes in the same XML file?

Thanks, Adrian. That's what I thought. Using xinclude to substitute for characters would be really cumbersome, but I like using xinclude for large files. I'm glad to see they work okay together.

Thanks for your response.

Can I use entities and xincludes in the same XML file?

Hi, I believe it is technically feasible for me to use entities and xincludes in the same XML file. But I believe it is not considered good practice.

One problem I've been running into is that the ANT transform fails when I try to insert an image via XSLT. For example, I've customized...

That's not the issue. I did double check, and the XSL URL is referring to the stylesheet I want. But that stylesheet has an import, and it is the import that is failing. The problem is that the relative path to the import file is fine: <xsl:import href="docbook-xsl-ns-1.76.1/html/docbook.xsl&qu...
