Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-311) OOo Headings bug causes Forrest to fail
Date Sat, 24 Dec 2005 02:18:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-311?page=all ]

David Crossley updated FOR-311:
-------------------------------

     Other Info: [Patch available]
    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.

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>

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)
