This is probably a xbiblio-user question but that doesn’t seem to exist
I am working my way through Bruce’s “Bleeding Edge” Instructions.
Please forgive my latex-isms as that’s where I’m coming from. I’ve
never written an XSL transform—I’m basically new to xml.
I have (thanks to Bruce’s workflow description)
- A document that is in docbook-ng format (validates and transforms
ok using oXygen’s docbook HTML and PDF) (well actually that is thanks
to Norman’s beta of the new docbook book)
- A bibliography in MODS format (used bib2xml) stored in an eXist
database on localhost called ‘mods’
- The citeproc source
- A transformation scenario set-up in oXygen using the
citeproc/xsl/document/dbng-xhtml.xsl sheet for the “XSL URL” using
Saxon8.1B with a parameter citation-style of author-year.
(BTW is there a way to ‘export’ and ‘import’ transformation scenarios
I’m far from sure what I’m doing (for example I started running that
transformation on the mods file!).
In the docbook file I have citations set up like this:
(Which I picked up (of all places from the header graphic on the
citeproc homepage ;).)
and the ‘mods’ database running on localhost has a MODS record with
Now where and how do I specify that I
a) want a Bibliography in the document (I guess that’s something to do
with which should go at the bottom of the docbook file?)
b) that it should use the references in the mods collection in the
eXist database (I think that’s the default so maybe I don’t have to
change that …)
Basic questions I know
- The css files didn’t get created (screen.css etc). Am I meant to
create those and add them into the transformation scenario, or are
there defaults that are specified by the xsl (or the csls?)
- The file was looking for images in …/images which I didn’t
specifiy at all… (I used this ) which should
(I think) be ./graphics from the folder that the original docbook file
- PDF images didn’t get converted to something html’y (well PDFs work
on OSX but nowhere else AFAIK. Is that something that would be
specified in the XSL transformations?
- What’s the relationship between the bibliomixed type stuff
mentioned on this page:
http://docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/bibliography.html and citeproc?
Hmmm. I think that’s it for now I’m going to blog this up once I
get it working.
