Subject PDF generation, DTD for XML documentation and slides
Date Wed, 15 May 2002 17:32:05 GMT

I'm not sure if this is of interest to you, but since it's about
documentation, here it is.

I'm working on writing the documentation for Anteater, a functional
testing framework for Web apps and Web services.

As part of this, I needed a way to document XML elements and their
attributes, so I've come up with a DTD extension to document-v10,
which allows documentation of XML to be easily written:

The stylesheet that transforms this DTD to document-v10 is here:

Another thing I've been working on is a DTD and the corresponding
stylesheet for doing slides. The DTD is again an extension of
document-v10 and could be found here:

There are two stylesheets that work with this DTD, but they're not yet
integrated in the build process. One of them generates the navigation
part between slides (navigation.xsl), the other one generates the look
of the slide (slides.xsl), and could be found here:

Last, but not least, I've started to write a document-v10 translator
to FO, so that we can generate PDF documentation. The stylesheet is

It's still work in progress, some elements from document-v10 are not
yet translated to FO, but will soon be.

You can see how these work if you checkout Anteater from
Sourceforge. The module name is Anteater, and the project can be found

Please let me know if this is of any interest.
