Markup for link redirection

Post by burbles » Mon Nov 04, 2013 1:58 pm

I'd like to know if there are standard elements and attributes in DITA 1.2 that will produce the following HTML coding, which is an auto-redirect:

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=../gui/PDF-pagemaster.svg"/>
Or, can this only be achieved by customizing stylesheets?

There are no standard DITA elements or transformation parameters for HTML auto-redirection. You will have to customize the XSLT stylesheets that create the output HTML pages. Depending on your output you will have to customize the stylesheet:
  • for XHTML output:

  • for Webhelp - the desktop version:

  • for Webhelp - the mobile version:
