Sharing Styler Stylesheets across Multiple Doctypes
Anyone have experience attempting to share the same Styler .style stylesheet with documents using different doctypes. The root document element is the same across all XML instances; however, the actual schema referenced in xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation is different (subset of same umbrella spec). Despite explicitly declaring the doctype = root document element, Arbortext insists that the doctype = XSD file in xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation attribute. To wit:
This is a known restriction in all versions of Arbortext Editor and PE software before 5.4. Because of the way that we built the internal data structures for a stylesheet (which was needed for performance) we could not use the same stylesheet for two different doctypes. This was true for Styler stylesheets or for FOSI stylesheets.
Starting with 5.4, we changed things so we can use the same stylesheet for two different doctypes.
