Just a few twigs in the yard, but power still out. #irene—@ndw

.@arh You want—@ndw
@ndw Got it. Thanks!—@arh
@ndw I've just committed new param $report-css-uri in format-xspec-report.xsl, to give a static URI for the CSS file, to work on GitHub e.g.—@fgeorges

Nice to see DocBook XSLT 2.0 stylesheet project on github. /cc @ndw—@kingargyle

Power restored. All systems normal. Anything you can't deal with now is your own problem. #irene—@ndw

DVDs that prevent you from skipping or even fast forwarding through the previews really tick me off.—@hadleynet
@hadleynet amen brother!—@christo4ferris
@hadleynet DRM is the f'ing suck.—@ndw

Running #Pygments with #Jython directly from a #Saxon extension function. Native #DocBook source code highlighting, FTW!—@ndw
@ndw I'm thinking Saxon->Jython->pywebkitgtk->Highlight.js—@abdelazer
@ndw I guess that's just Saxon->Rhino->JS, how trivial—@abdelazer

Using Pygments from XSLT,—@ndw
@ndw why not use javascript highlighters?—@jwpye
@jwpye I want to style the highlighted results.—@ndw
@ndw how does it know which type of source code it is (Java, Xml,..)? Afaik programlisting does not allow to define a class / type—@vogella
@vogella programlisting has a ‘language’ attribute. If you don’t use that, Pygments will guess using whatever heuristics it uses.—@ndw
@ndw cool & thank. I searched for this frequently without success. I hope this is available in 4.03 and your old ;-) Xlst file for Html.—@vogella
@vogella Uh, 4.03 of what? And if you mean the XSLT 1.0 stylesheets, well, I’m probably not going to get around to porting it anytime soon.—@ndw
@ndw From what what I see Docbook pre 5.0 has the language attribute. I hope Xlst 1.0 sheets convert that into a "class" attribute in Html.—@vogella
@ndw I will try it out (I'm currently without my Linux Machine). Thanks for the info. Super cool.—@vogella
@ndw then I could simple use an JavaScript Highlighter for the coding in my webpage. People complaining frequently.—@vogella

Thank freaking goodness.—@ndw
@ndw i'm embarrassed to wonder if our right-wing supreme court would have seen it this way...—@eedeebee

@ndw The Pygments blog post example doesn't seem to have the CSS necessary for actually highlighting?—@abdelazer
@abdelazer now it does... @ndw—@abdelazer
@abdelazer Browser cache issue?—@ndw
@ndw Yeah, sorry for the noise—@abdelazer

Alternative approach for syntax highlighting in DocBook using XSLT2.0, Python, Pygments from @ndw—@jirkakosek

Today, working day as usual, but being amused by @ndw emails :-)—@fgeorges
@fgeorges Happy to amuse you, Florent! (Insert Goodfellas reference here)—@ndw
@ndw What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny? ;-)—@fgeorges

#Emacs on OS X: which version do you recommend? Aquamacs, builds from Brew emacs formula?—@avernet
@avernet I was going to recommend but they seem to be having DNS troubles today.—@ndw
@ndw Thanks; I'll give it a shot. (The site is now/from here working fine.)—@avernet
@avernet @ndw plain vanilla (latest) emacs has mac osx version that works fine for me—@xquery
@xquery @avernet That's what I was pointing to, I believe.—@ndw

@ndw I guess you don't you need your blood pressure raising any more, but anyway: WHATWG IRC on HTML/XML—@JeniT
@JeniT Meh.—@ndw

Obama has kicked the clean air rules - still waiting for that change we can believe in...—@shelleypowers

Tried out language attribute for programlisting in Docbook. Unfortunately the XSL 1.74 does not use this as class attribute in HTML cc:@ndw—@vogella
@vogella Ok. I’ll see what I can do for—@ndw
@ndw That would be super nice. Thank you.—@vogella

Saturday at 03:48pm

@ndw just in case you want to see examples for JavaScript highlighting—@vogella
