Re: Variable definition not processed when variable isn't output

Removing the <xsl:otherwise> element doesn't help.

However, it appears that "string($volume) = ''" and "not(string($volume))" both work as a test for the undefined variable.

Re: Variable definition not processed when variable isn't output

Hi, I'd like to pick this topic up again to ask what's the best practice when you need to set a variable and you also need to know if the variable has unexpectedly not been set? In this case, I'm processing JATS XML files that may or may not have a <volume> element. So my stylesheet has this at the ...

XML refactoring removes CDATA markup

I tried using the XML Refactoring tool to add an attribute to an element that has CDATA content, e.g., <tex-math notation="LaTeX"> <![CDATA[ \( E = mc^2 \) ]]> </tex-math> When I added the attribute 'version="MathJax"', the CDATA markup was stripped out, leaving me with <tex-math...

CSS for JATS related-article and self-url elements

I'm working with JATS-like files that may include <self-uri> and <related-article> elements. The elements have no content, but I want to display some of their attribute values even when in Partial Tags or No Tags mode. To do this I am modifying the jats-authoring.css and jats-authoring-labelled.css ...

Action to run multiple updates on the source document

I have an XSLT script that performs two types of actions on an XML document: ⋅ Issues warnings (using <xsl:message>) if it finds markup errors it cannot correct ⋅ Makes some easy corrections (e.g., change <month>1</month> to <month>01</month> throughout the document) On the comma...

Re: Associating DTD public identifier with local DTD file

I've been working with this solution for a while now, and it seems OK.

The only obstacle is the catalog files I've created. In each on...

Re: Diff files and namespaces

Hi Octavian,

I notice that your second file includes the namespace declaration on the 'mml:math' start tag, whereas mine did not. Is this strictly necessary if I have the 'mml' namespace declaration in the root element ('article') start tag?

Diff files and namespaces

I'm using Diff Files to examine pairs of files: an old file created by an existing (non-XSLT) conversion program, and a new file created by the XSLT transformation I'm working on. The files contain many math expressions tagged in MathML. In the old files, each MathML element tag includes a namespace...

Re: Associating DTD public identifier with local DTD file

I have a solution, but I'm not sure if it's ideal. I set up frameworks for both document types, using only the Public ID for each one in the association rules, specifying the DTD, and adding a catalog file for each one. Tested again, but I was still getting validation errors. So I compared all the p...
