I have changed the title of my book to Practical FOSI to reflect the book's focus on a practical way to code FOSI stylesheets. This approach removes complexity without sacrificing formatting capabilities. It is described in Chapter 3: A Practical Approach to FOSI.
PDF of the following can be downloaded from www.FOSIexpert.com/Practical-fosi.html:
Preface Chapter 1: Introduction Chapter 2: FOSI Basics Chapter 3: A Practical Approach to FOSI Chapter 4: FOSI Variables Chapter 5: FOSI Syntax and Keywords Chapter 6: FOSI Pseudo-elements Chapter 7: FOSI-Generated Material
I have tried to put the narrative material is an order that makes sense. Please let me know your feedback on this.
Note that I also added an example of some fancy FOSI footwork I was fooling around with awhile back: change bars with "stripes."
I apologize the book is taking so long. I am not a fast writer, and I know too much about the material. Finally, I don't like to document something until I have proved to myself it works as stated. The good news is most of the rest of the book is written, as the cross reference page numbers in the posted chapters suggest.
Thank you for your comments and for your patience.
I'm at Caesar's Palace for PlanetPTC Live. Hope to see you 🙂

I just installed Arbortext on a new box and the PE is throwing an error I can't seem to fix:
<level>ERROR</level><message>Error response from e3: message = 'Failed to open document 'E:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext PE\e3\e3\logs\transactions\rq_34868\source\x12.xml' with flags '636' using stylesheet '(null)'.
Exception error = '[A15015] Could not open the Schema/DTD file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\BAE_GTS.dtd".
main::ERROR = '[A15015] Could not open the Schema/DTD file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\BAE_GTS.dtd".
main::ERRORS[ 0 ]: '[A15015] Could not open the Schema/DTD file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\BAE_GTS.dtd"
main::ERRORS[ 1 ]: '[A15015] Could not open the Schema/DTD file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\BAE_GTS.dtd"'.</message<br/>>
The catalog showing the DTD location is loading. The individual documents show up in the new file types list. The extant documents open and know where the DTD is. Everything runs just fine and normal right up to composition. Any ideas?
