Is there any option to define multiple element in one element context<e-i-c> in FOSI stylesheet?

Is there any option to define multiple element in one element context<e-i-c> in FOSI stylesheet?

Hi,

I want to apply font color for more than 50 elements in one element context(dt--definition term). Below is the coding for making individual element font color.

<e-i-c gi="ph" occur="all">

<charlist inherit="1">

<indent inherit="0"/></charlist>

<att>

<specval attname="ishcondition" attloc="ph" attval="#ANY"/>

<specval attname="EDITOR-ONLY" attloc="system-var" attval="#ANY"/>

<charsubset>

<indent inherit="0"/>

<highlt fontclr="#663399"/></charsubset>

</att>

</e-i-c>

Similar way i want to apply all element inside <dt> element. instead of applying individual element is there any option for defining all in one <e-i-c>

Thanks

Hi Roopesh,

In the following example, I have named the text entity highlight. The entity declaration in the FOSI would look like this in an ASCII editor:

<!ENTITY highlight '<att>

<specval attname="ishcondition" attval="#ANY"/>

<specval attname="EDITOR-ONLY" attloc="system-var" attval="#ANY"/>

<charsubset>

<indent inherit="0"/>

<highlt fontclr="#663399"/>

</charsubset>

</att>'>

The e-i-c for each element in <dt> would look like this in an ASCII editor:

<e-i-c gi="ph" occur="dt">

<charlist inherit="1">

<indent inherit="0"/>

</charlist>

&highlight;

</e-i-c>


Good luck!

Hi Roopesh,

When duplicate attribute rules are needed, you can create a text entity and reference it in any e-i-c.

Note that in this case, you should not specify attval in the first specval so the ishcondition attribute is looked for on the current element, which will not always be <ph>.

In the FOSI tagged editor, highlight the <att> and select Entities>Create Text Entity from Selection:

<att>

<specval attname="ishcondition" attval="#ANY"/>

<specval attname="EDITOR-ONLY" attloc="system-var" attval="#ANY"/>

<charsubset>

<indent inherit="0"/>

<highlt fontclr="#663399"/>

</charsubset>

</att>

When the text entity has been created, you can reference it the e-i-cs for all the elements in <dt>.  If you ever want to change the color, you only have to change the text entity.

The Entities>Text... dialog makes it easy to work with text entities. Note that it counts and finds every reference to any text entity.

I have attached a few pages from my forthcoming book, Practical FOSI, with an example of a text entity used for security classification. It shows how the entity and references appear in the ASCII file.

Good luck!

Hi Suzanne Napoleon,

Thank you for the help. Could you please provide sample entity code and reference for the above element? As i am new in this FOSI, i tried to generated in Arbortext editor, it was not successful.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you for the code. I added above code in concept.fos and ditabase.fos just above the root tag<outspec> and call the entity reference. But i am getting many errors

1.     object out of context specval

2.     undeclared entity reference highlight

3.     Extra end tag encountered. The end tag is for element 'att'. A begin tag will be supplied

please help me where i need to place this entity?

Thanks

It sounds like there is a typo.
