New tag elements in PDF output

Thu Jun 08, 2017 2:54 pm

I`ve created new .ent and .mod file with my custom tag element (<kword>) to be used inside <codeblock> element. Then I've connected .mod and .ent files to topic.dtd file. Parameters of new tag elements (font-style, color etc) was declared in skin.css during webhelp publishing. Everything was ok.
But now I need to publish my ditamap also in PDF using default Apache-FOM. I type following text inside my custom.xsl:

Code: Select all

<xsl:template match="*[contains(@class,' topic/kword ')]">
        <fo:inline xsl:use-attribute-sets="kword">
            <xsl:call-template name="commonattributes"/>
<xsl:attribute-set name="kword">
        <xsl:attribute name="color">red</xsl:attribute>

But after publishing my <kword> element does not became red-colored. Changing design of standart elements with custom.xsl works fine. Could you tell where I might be wrong?

What you are saying looks OK, there is probably a problem either in the way in which you made your DTD specialization (did you create a new public ID for your topic types?) or in your PDF customization.
If you want us to help further I would need your entire DTD specialization, steps to install it + your entire PDF customization.
