AW: Working with FOSI entities

Hi Yvonne,
try to define them as really SGML-Entitites and it should work, means that
work at our side:

AMEND 1 19961231//EN" [











]>
<outspec>
<rsrcdesc>
&Hyphrule;
&Charfill;
&Counter;
&Stringdecl;
&Floatloc;
</rsrcdesc>
<pagedesc>
&Pagedesc;
</pagedesc>

<styldesc>
&Charsubset;
&Docdesc;
&Eic;
&MyEic;
</styldesc>
</outspec>

The entitiy file \\Myserver\MyDirectory\Fosi\MyEic.ent :

<e-i-c gi="para">
<charlist inherit="1" charsubsetref="block" prespace&quot;="></charlist>
</e-i-c>

As far as other tools like XML-Authority or equal will not understand the
meaning of PIs, it should be worth to change to SGML-Syntax:

best regards to munich

Hy,
this is exactly the way I do it, the only difference: I'm using a Public ID
(defined in the catalog) for the entity declaration in the fosi:


AMEND 1 19961231//EN" [




]>
<outspec>
<rsrcdesc softkeepspage="1">
<charfill literal="_" orient="horiz" spbefore="0pt" spafter="0pt"&lt;br"/>padding="0pt"
truncat="1" cfid="underscorefill">
<charfill literal="." orient="horiz" spbefore="2pt" spafter="2pt"&lt;br"/>padding="1pt"
truncat="1" cfid="dotfill">
<charfill literal="" &quot;=" orient="horiz" spbefore="0pt" spafter="0pt"&lt;br"/>padding="0pt"
truncat="1" align="0" cfid="spacefill">
&fosi-counter;
&fosi-strings;
</rsrcdesc>
<pagedesc>

What I meant is that pherhaps Epic needs some PI's inside the entity files
themselves.
Anyway stuff does not work 😞

Yvonne,

Whether you use a CATALOG of not, each ENTITY must be defined in the
declaration subset of the document. As the FOSI is an SGML instance, it
can understand and use a CATALOG. The CATALOG (in SGML and Epic, but not
some other XML only applications) serves the purpose of the SYSTEM
identifier.

One thing to be aware of in Epic (Arbortext are you listening to this????)
is that even if you put a SYSTEM identifier (as REQUIRED in the XML
standard) along with your ENTITY declaration (or DTD for that matter [hint
hint]), Epic will use any CATALOG entry that matches (even if it is not
what you expect) ahead of the SYSTEM identifier in the document.

I just downloaded Epic 5.0 and haven't installed it here at work (yet). So
maybe they have fixed this in 5.0. I know from (very) recent frustration
this is not the case in 4.4. Catalog is read first, then the SYSTEM ID and
the Catalog is what the call in supply terms FIFO (First In, First Out)

Lynn,

Did I get the wrong end of the stick? I thought that was what Yvonne was talking about.

As of 30.04.2004 I won't mention FP's ever again and will fosi-off (oops, sorry - mosey-off) to my rocking chair and the cat.

Nice to hear from you again. By the way, tell an old english woman who R. Lee Ermey is please.

Maggie,

No, you got it right. I just never use the panels. I'm a glutton for
punishment and usually edit my FOSI as an ASCII text file. If I do edit in
Epic, I use the tagged mode. I knew I should have put my

<sarcasm></sarcasm>

tag into the message.

Lynn

Yvonne,

I did get a case number for the Style Set List issue, but I'm afraid I can't find the Mail I received anymore. All I can remember is that support said thankyou to our German distributor for reporting it. Perhaps you can tell support this.
