DocBook Stylesheets 2.0.2 released

Volume 14, Issue 34; 01 Oct 2011

The XSLT 2.0 stylesheets for DocBook are improving.

The XSLT 2.0 stylesheets for DocBook are improving. Actually, I think the HTML ones are in pretty good shape. Recently, I've

  • Added support for the “slides” customization. It's now based on the model that there's a single HTML file and presentation is controlled by JavaScript and CSS. (You can still generate multiple files, if you wish.)

  • I've improved support for HTML tables in the XSL FO stylesheets. I updated the tests to include HTML versions of all the relevant tables.

  • I added a $resource.root parameter to identify where ancillary resources (images, CSS, JavaScript, etc.) are stored. They're now on by default.

  • I fixed some bugs in table numbering and table footnote numbering. HTML tables with captions don't count as “formal tables” anymore.

  • I fixed some bugs equation title placement.

Get the release from or clone the repo.

Feedback is always welcome.


Hi Norm,
Thanks for this amazing work! :-)
Would it possible to generate the documentation for the stylesheets and save it on in an extra archive or on Sourceforge for easier consumption?
