Date: Sat, 13 Feb 1999 13:38:49 -0500 From: Didier PH Martin <email@example.com> To: DSSSL mailing list <DSSSList@mulberrytech.com> Subject: ANN: New release of the DSSSL XML/SGML Kit
A new version of the XML/SGML kit for IE 4.x and IE 5.x has been posted at: http://www.netfolder.com.
This new version includes:
A new processing instruction implementation for xml documents. The media property is now processed and used to determine the output type. In this version, only the screen media value is supported (aural and print are not). The output types rtf, html, tex and mif are supported Example:
<?xml-stylesheet href="myscript.dsl" type="text/dsssl" media="screen,html"?>.
The MIF output type is now displayed as text in the browser's window after having been processed by the DSSSL engine. The resultant text can be saved from the file->save as menu option.
The RTF type is displayed "inplace" in the browser's window either with Word or the word viewer.
The html type is equivalent to the jade's sgml type. Either Jade DSSSL extensions or Tony Graham (Mulberry) html macros could be used. The resultant html document is displayed in the browser's window.
If no media property is declared, then the default media is set to html and DSSSL Formatting object are converted into HTML+CSS elements. The dsssl style sheet root object should be set to "scroll" instead of "simple-page-sequence" or any other "page" formatting objects.
The new DSSSL style sheet processing instruction for MEL document is implemented for test purpose and is subject to be commented and then further adjusted from these comments.
[Note: 'default' DSSSL script]
