Subject [JIRA] Updated: (FOR-311) OOo Headings bug causes Forrest to fail
Date Wed, 06 Oct 2004 20:29:58 GMT
The following issue has been updated:

    Updater: Charles Palmer (mailto:charles@dspdesign.com)
       Date: Wed, 6 Oct 2004 3:28 PM
    Comment:
Contains head.sxw and its matching content.xml (renamed head.xml) - these are the "virgin"
files. Also contains headless.sxw and its matching content.xml (renamed headless.xml) - which
is the result of deleting the original Heading 5 line and replacing it with a new Heading
5 line - now stored in a <test:p> tag.
    Changes:
             Attachment changed to headings.zip

        Key: FOR-311
    Summary: OOo Headings bug causes Forrest to fail
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: Forrest
 Components: 
             Other
   Versions:
             HEAD

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Charles Palmer

    Created: Wed, 6 Oct 2004 3:25 PM
    Updated: Wed, 6 Oct 2004 3:28 PM
Environment: All

Description:
There appears to be a bug or feature in OpenOffice which affects how haedings are stored as
XML. It appears that if a virgin document is opened then all headings are stored in <text:h>
tags, but if an existing document is opened that lacks a particular haeding style, then if
you create that heading style it is stored in <text:p> tags.

This causes Forrest to mis-interpret headings, as the Forrest OOo XSL file identifies OOo
headings by looking for the <text:h> tags.

You can reproduce this effect as follows:
 
1	Create a new text file.
2	Create 20 lines of text, one of each style Heading 1-10, with a "default" format line between
each.
3	Save this file (as "head.sxw" for example), unzip it and examine its content.xml. You will
see that all of the headings are of the format:

 <text:h text:style-name="Heading 5" text:level="5">Heading 5</text:h>

4	Copy head.sxw this to headless.sxw.
5	Open headless.sxw, delete the Heading 5 line, then save and close the file.
6	Reopen headless.sxw, and add a new line where the original Heading 5 line had been. Change
the style of this new line to Heading 5. 
7	Save this file, unzip it and examine its content.xml. The new line of style heading 5 is:

  <text:p text:style-name="Heading 5">New heading 5</text:p>


So ...

So perhaps openoffice-writer2forrest.xsl should reconsider how it matches headings. Instead
of the current:

  <xsl:template match="text:h[@text:level='1']">

maybe it should match text:h or text:p with an attribute text:style-name="Heading 1" etc.

(Hopefully I will work out how to attach the .sxw and .xml files so you can see these examples
easily)
