Why is localizing webhelp responsive in 20.1 more complicated?

I was searching for documentation on localizing webhelp output and found this page: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/18/ug-author/tasks/localize-webhelp.html The steps MADE PERFECT SENSE, but did not work for me (using Oxygen 20.1).

Trying to get WebHelp Responsive Tree to behave like Classic

I like the index_frames version of Webhelp Classic. I'm trying to switch over to Webhelp Responsive Tree but having trouble getting the desired functionality.

Modifying plugin XSL

In order to add some functionality to the webhelp classic view, I've been modifying the XSL in the "...frameworks\dita\DITA-OT2.x\plugins\com.oxygenxml.webhelp.classic\xsl" folder. Is this considered "best practice"? I think it would be better to copy the plugin folder and edit that code instead. If...

Re: Referencing an external CSS

I should have thought of that!

OK, so I note that this puts a custom head into the HTML pages of topic files. Is there a way to put custom code in the HEAD of the *main* page?

Responsive footer not at bottom of page

Oxygen 20.0, webhelp responsive tiles.

When I'm looking at the page full screen on a large monitor, the footer is not at the bottom of the page; this results in some extra white space at the bottom.

Re: CSS-Based PDF, change language of "Note", "Warning", "Caution" etc

When I was generating PDFs using the old XSLT generation (ie, out-of-the-box Oxygen PDF transformation), I was able to control these notes, warnings, and cautions using the default.language parameter. But that doesn't seem to work anymore. Likewise, when I set the "xml:lang" parameter, I still can't...

CSS-Based PDF,

Where are the localized strings for things like "Note", "warning", "caution", etc stored? And do I use the default.lang transform parameter to control which set of strings get used?

CSS-Based PDF question about footers

I'm using the @page attributes to create headers and footers.

For example, in my @bottom-left I specify

@bottom-left {
content: "Part number: XXX";
}

I'd like to have the "XXX" be in a different color, but I can't figure out how to do that. Any tips?

Thanks.

I would like to be able to control them separately - a column break is not as bad as a page break.
