Hmm...

Well, I'm now trying to import the second stylesheet, and it does not appear to have any effect on the output at present. The import statement is: <xsl:import href="transcript.xsl" /> And the included XML file is included like so: <xi:include href="transcript.xml" /> The two XML files are NOT the sa...

1 + 1 (included) XML file … 2 XSL … 1 Ant buildfile

So, I have 2 XML files with an XSL file for each one. I've performed these transformations individually and everything works AOK. So now I have one XML file including the second one, but I still want the second one to use its own stylesheet--not the parent's stylesheet. Finally, I'm learning Ant (wh...

vCards in XML

There's a W3C "Note" on representing vCards in RDF here: http://www.w3.org/TR/vcard-rdf I know how to get Oxygen to associate an XML Schema with an XML document, but I have absolutely no experience with RDF. The document linked above does have an XMLNS mentioned, but this does not seem to provide as...

Hmmm…

So, in my DocBook file, the DocBook schema was set as the default namespace.

Do I absolutely have to assign it to a namespace in the stylesheet? Is it not possible for me to specify that any elements without a namespace belong to X, Y, or Z ns?

XSL-FO results in all <fo:block> elements

So, I have an XML file (Docbook 5 CR 5). I have an XSL-FO stylesheet. And I have the resulting document from an XSL transformation. It's an FO document alright, but it once it gets to the first fo:flow, it's all <fo:blocks>. Here's the XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <?xml-stylesheet typ...

Nope.

So, I changed the transformation setup so that instead of outputting a PDF, it outputs an FO file and opens it in the editor so that I can see what's going on. It appears that no attributes are making it into the resulting FO document whatsoever. Furthermore, everything is in <fo:block> elements. Wh...

Formatting omitted from XSL-FO transformation

I'm attempting to learn XSL-FO by starting completely minimalist: just one simple-page-master, and just one page-sequence. The source file is Docbook 5 CR5. So, my XSL file begins like this: <xsl:template match="/"> <fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"> <!-- defines templates descri...

How to get Content Assist for xmlns:fo when inside XSL?

I'm writing an XSL file that outputs FO code. The XSL content assist works fine, but the FO does not.

If I type invalid FO code, Oxygen will highlight it, but it doesn't provide content assist. Anybody know how I can turn it on?

Thanks.

So, kill it in XML?

Thanks to everyone for their excellent help. This forum is invaluable! Answers gratefully noted; but they lead me to new questions: does this mean it is safe to kill all BOMs in all XML documents? Also, in Oxygen→Preferences→Global , there is a BOM handling preference, with options as follows: "keep...

Hey, I opened all files in TextWrangler (a Mac-based fantastic text editor, completely free, and the "lite" version of the well-known BBEdit). TextWrangler has an extremely handy everpresent encoding option at the bottom of the window. It always lists the current encoding, and you can click on it to...

Hmmm....

Thanks for the quick reply! Is the BOM problem with the XML file or the XSL? Also, doesn't oXygen have a built-in way of dealing with this? It does a fantastic job of taking the gruntwork out of a lot of other things, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way change encoding (or BOMs) on already-exis...

"Content not allowed in prolog"--what prolog???

I keep getting this "Content not allowed in prolog" error when attempting to transform a Docbook XML file into a PDF (using FO).

Horizontal scrolling with trackpad (MacBook)

Apple's notebooks all have the ability to scroll both vertically and horizontally by using 2 fingers on the trackpad. Vertical scrolling is mostly okay in oXygen (although I think I remember one or two spots where it didn't seem to work? Not 100% sure there…). However, horizontal scrolling via the...
