Found this related issue in the DITA-OT tracker with some hints how to solve my problem: Bug in "dita-utilities.xsl" getVariable when called from string context https://github.com/dita-ot/dita-ot/issues/2512 From any context, I think this would provide a mechanism to override the language, by passin...

Pass language explicitly to "getVariable" template

Hello, I have created a customization of the Oxygen WebHelp. One of the XSLT templates matches <xsl:template match="toc:topic> . Inside this template I use <xsl:call-template name="getVariable"> for some localized text. The problem is that somehow no language values seems to be available inside this...

Re: WebHelp customization: Localized text in HTML fragment

Hi Anton,

The usual way in XML is to use one or both of the following entities:

Carriage return: &#xD;
Line feed: &#xA;

I haven't tested this, though.

Best regards,
Frank

Re: Licensing: Publish WebHelp from oXygen

Hi,

I have an additional question:

Is the footer text "Generated by <oXygen/> XML WebHelp" required when our customer publishes their customized WebHelp on their website? Or can they change the text?

Re: Responsive footer not at bottom of page

Hi, As a CSS workaround, you could try changing .wh_footer { position: relative; } to .wh_footer { position: fixed; } . That would make the footer stick to the bottom of the browser window. However, I haven't done any thorough testing so this fix might have undesired side-effects. Best regards, Frank

Many thanks for your reply. Making the whc:webhelp_publication_toc component available for other pages would be appreciated.

Re: Profiling Condition Sets don't show in menu anymore

Just an update regarding the DITAVAL import:

Recent versions of oXygen add *DITA* (with two wildcards) as document type when importing DITAVAL files so above mentioned issue with a document type of "Customer DITA" is solved.
