Re: Problem using xpath_eval in transform scenario output tab

Using a simplified test, it appears that the $pd variable isn't being expanded or is causing some error. Given the following code: ${xpath_eval(concat('${pd}', '\foo.xml'))} which doesn't resolve to an actual file, I get no error message. Changing only the internal variable, ${xpath_eval(concat('${p...

Re: Problem using xpath_eval in transform scenario output tab

I should add that with ${pd}\ no document is opened and no error is presented. If I remove it I get a cannot open file error.

Is there a way to cause a custom action to execute after a new document is created from a template (file->New)? I would like to execute the docbook generate.ids action to execute so that a new document has all IDs populated.

If you are authoring a mixed content element and insert an inline element and it happens to be at the end of the line and thus wraps, it it hard to tell if there is a space, which in this context would be significant. <para><guidropdown>Alphabetically by block name</guidropdown>.

Insert Table Title prompt

In the docbook framework Insert Table dialog, we would like control on the default status of the "Title" checkbox. In our instance, most tables are informal, so our writers have to constantly uncheck the box.

tag display in tables

If you have internal markup in a table and you set tag display to full with attributes, tables become very difficult to work with. A helpful feature would be to have a second tag display selector that applies to table cell contents.

One more problem: if the file a.xml has an xinclude to b.xml where @val is, the xincludes don't seem to be expanded and the oxy_xpath seems to fail. Is there a flat on the doc function to expand xincludes? Also, where is the documentation for the doc function?

Radu,

You are correct about the side effect free implementation. You might want to consider this proposed extension for use in XQueryUpdateOperation as a possible enhancement:
