+<p>
+        This document describes Forrest's internal URI space; how it is managed
+        with the "<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>" configuration file, how menus are generated,
+        and how various link schemes (site: and ext:) operate.
+        An overview of the implementation is also provided.
+      </p>
+</div>
+
+    
+<a name="N1001A"></a><a name="site"></a>
+<h2 class="underlined_10">site.xml</h2>
+<div class="section">
+<p>
+        The "<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>" configuration file is what we would call a "site map"
+        if Cocoon hadn't already claimed that term. 
+        The "<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>" is a loosely structured XML file, acting as a map of the
+        site's contents.  It provides a unique identifier (an XPath address)
+        for "nodes" of information in the website.  A "node" of site information
+        can be:
+      </p>
+<ul>
+        
+<li>A category of information, like "the user guide". A category may
+          correspond to a directory, but that is not required.</li>
+        
+<li>A specific page, e.g. "the FAQ page"</li>
+        
+<li>A specific section in a page, e.g. the "general" section of the FAQ
+          page (identified by <span class="codefrag">id="general"</span> attribute)</li>
+      
+</ul>
+<p>
+        In addition to providing fine-grained addressing of site info, the <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>
+        allows <em>metadata</em> to be associated with each node, using
+        attributes or child elements.  Most commonly, a <span class="codefrag">label</span>
+        attribute is used to provide a text description of the node.
+      </p>
+<p>
+        There are currently two applications of <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>
+

+<dd>
+<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> provides a basic aliasing mechanism for linking, e.g. one
+          can write &lt;link href="site:changes"&gt; from anywhere in the site, and
+          link to the "changes" information node (translated to changes.html).
+          More on this below.</dd>

+<p>As you can see, things are quite free-form. The rules are as follows:</p>
+<ul>
+        
+<li>The root element must be "site", and normal content should be in the
+          namespace <span class="codefrag">http://apache.org/forrest/linkmap/1.0</span> (Feel
+          free to mix in your own content (RDF, dublin core, etc) under new
+          namespaces)</li>
+        
+<li>Element names are used as identifiers.  The "<span class="codefrag">foo</span>" in
+          "<span class="codefrag">site:foo</span>" must therefore be a valid NMTOKEN.</li>
+        
+<li>Elements with <span class="codefrag">href</span> attributes can be used as identifiers
+          in "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" URIs</li>
+        
+<li>Relative href attribute contents are "accumulated" by prepending hrefs
+          from ancestor nodes</li>
+        
+<li>Elements without <span class="codefrag">label</span> attributes (and their children)
+          are not displayed in the menu.</li>
+        
+<li>Elements below <span class="codefrag">external-refs</span> are mapped to the
+          "<span class="codefrag">ext:</span>" scheme.  So "<span class="codefrag">ext:commons/resolver/</span>" becomes
+          "<span class="codefrag">http://xml.apache.org/commons/resolver/</span>"</li>

+        Two files are used to define a site's tabs and menu (<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> and
+        <span class="codefrag">tabs.xml</span>).  Both files are located in
+        <span class="codefrag">src/documentation/content/xdocs/</span>
+</p>
+<p>Assume that our <span class="codefrag">tabs.xml</span> looks like this:</p>
+<pre class="code">
+&lt;tabs ...&gt;
+    &lt;tab id="home" label="Home" dir=""/&gt;
+    &lt;tab id="community" label="Community" dir="community" indexfile="mailLists.html"/&gt;
+    &lt;tab id="howto" label="How-Tos" dir="community/howto"/&gt;
+&lt;/tabs&gt;
+      </pre>
+<p>Using the "<span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>" listed above, we would get these menus:</p>
+<p>
+        
+<img alt="Menu generated from site.xml" src="images/menu.png">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
+        <img alt="Community menu generated from site.xml" src="images/menu2.png">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
+        <img alt="Howto menu generated from site.xml" src="images/menu3.png">
+      </p>
+<p>When using the "<span class="codefrag">dir</span>" attribute as above the value of the
+      "<span class="codefrag">indexfile</span>" parameter is appended to the value of the 
+      "<span class="codefrag">dir</span>" attribute (together with a preceding '/'). For example,
+      the link for the community tab above is 
+      <span class="codefrag">community/mailLists.html</span>. Note that "<span class="codefrag">indexfile</span>"
+      defaults to "<span class="codefrag">index.html</span>" if no value is supplied. Therefore the
+      link for the howto tab is <span class="codefrag">community/howto/index.html</span>
+</p>
+<a name="N100ED"></a><a name="tabs-external"></a>
+<h3 class="underlined_5">Tabs for External Resources</h3>
+<p>A tab can refer to an external resource by using the 
+        "<span class="codefrag">href</span>" attribute instead of the "<span class="codefrag">dir</span>" attribute.
+        The value of "<span class="codefrag">href</span>" should be the URI of the resource you wish 
+        to link to. For example:</p>
+<pre class="code">
+&lt;tab id="apache" label="XML Apache" href="http://xml.apache.org/"/&gt;
+        </pre>
+<p>Unlike the "<span class="codefrag">dir</span>" attribute, the value of "<span class="codefrag">href</span>"
+        is left unmodified by Forrest unless it is root-relative and obviously 
+        specifies a directory (ends in '/'). In which case /index.html will be 
+        added.</p>
+<a name="N1010D"></a><a name="selecting-entries"></a>
+<h3 class="underlined_5">Selecting menu entries</h3>
+<p>Forrest decides which menu entries to display, by examining the
+          "<span class="codefrag">tab</span>" attributes in the <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> file. The children of 
+          all <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> entries with a
+          "<span class="codefrag">tab</span>" which is equal to that of the current page, are
+          added to the menu, whilst the element itself forms the root of that
+          part of the menu (see the "<span class="codefrag">community</span>" element in the 
+          example below). Child elements that have a different 
+          "<span class="codefrag">tab</span>" attribute value will appear in the menu for their
+          parents, and will also form the root of a new menu for a tab with 
+          the appropriate name (see the "<span class="codefrag">howto-samples</span>" element
+          below).</p>

+          Every <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> node can potentially have a "<span class="codefrag">tab</span>" attribute.  If

+        </p>
+<a name="N10173"></a><a name="dir-menu-selection"></a>
+<h4>Directory-based selection</h4>
+<p>In this scheme, each tab corresponds to a directory within the
+            site.  All content below that directory is included in the menu.</p>
+<p>
+            
+<img alt="Directory-based site menu" src="images/dir-menu.png">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

+<p>
+            To use this scheme:
+          </p>
+<ul>
+            
+<li>Edit <span class="codefrag">forrest.properties</span> and set
+              <span class="codefrag">project.menu-scheme=directories</span>
+</li>
+

+</ul>
+<a name="N101A3"></a><a name="book-menu-selection"></a>
+<h4>Specifying menus with book.xml</h4>
+<p>
+            Historically, menus in Forrest have been generated from a
+            <span class="codefrag">book.xml</span> file, one per directory.  This mechanism is
+            still available, and if a <span class="codefrag">book.xml</span> is found, it will be
+            used in preference to the menu generated by the <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> file. The <span class="codefrag">book.xml</span>
+            files can use "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" URIs to ease the maintenance burden
+            that led to obsolescence of book.xml files.  In general, however, we
+            recommend that users avoid <span class="codefrag">book.xml</span> files.
+          </p>
+<a name="N101C0"></a><a name="tab-selection"></a>
+<h3 class="underlined_5">Selecting the current tab</h3>
+<p>
+          The tab selection algorithm is quite simple: the tab with the
+          "<span class="codefrag">id</span>" which matches that of the current <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>
+          node is "selected". If you experience any problems, try to add a 
+          <span class="codefrag">&lt;foo label="Foo" href="index.html"/&gt;</span> to the
+          <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> configuration.

+<p>Each page can have an automatically generated table of contents. This
+      is created from the titles of each section in your xdoc. By default only

+      behaviour in <span class="codefrag">src/documentation/skinconf.xml</span> using the 
+      "<span class="codefrag">toc</span>" element.</p>
+<pre class="code">

+<ul>
+        
+<li>
+<strong><span class="codefrag">level</span></strong> - is the depth to which you

+        
+<li>
+<strong><span class="codefrag">location</span></strong> - indicates where you

+

+<h3 class="underlined_5">Direct linking</h3>
+<p>
+          In earlier versions of Forrest (and in similar systems), there has
+          been only one URI space: that of the generated site.  If <span class="codefrag">index.xml</span> wants to
+          link to <span class="codefrag">todo.xml</span> then <span class="codefrag">index.xml</span> would use
+        </p>
+<pre class="code">
+          &lt;link href="todo.html"&gt;to-do list&lt;link&gt;
+        </pre>
+<p>
+          The theoretical problem with this is that the content producer should
+          not know or care how Forrest is going to render the source.  A URI
+          should only <em>identify</em> a resource, not specify it's type
+          [<a class="external" href="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=forrest-dev&m=103097808318773&w=2">mail ref</a>] and
+          [<a class="external" href="http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI.html">cool URIs</a>]. In fact, as Forrest
+          typically renders to multiple output formats (HTML and PDF), links in
+          one of them (here, the PDF) are likely to break.
+        </p>
+<a name="N10237"></a><a name="indirect-linking"></a>
+<h3 class="underlined_5">Indirect linking</h3>
+<p>
+          Forrest's solution is simple: instead of &lt;link href="todo.html"&gt;,
+          write &lt;link href="site:todo"&gt; where:
+        </p>
+<dl>
+          
+<dt>site</dt>
+          
+<dd>is a URI "scheme"; a namespace that restricts
+            the syntax and semantics of the rest of the URI
+            [<a class="external" href="http://zvon.org/tmRFC/RFC2396/Output/index.html">rfc2396</a>].  The semantics of "site" are
+            "this identifier locates something in the site's XML sources".</dd>
+          
+<dt>todo</dt>
+          
+<dd>identifies the content in <span class="codefrag">todo.xml</span> by reference to a
+            "node" of content declared in <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>
+</dd>
+        
+</dl>
+<p>
+          We call this indirect, or <em>semantic</em> linking because instead of
+          linking to a physical representation (todo.html), we've linked to the
+          "idea" of "the todo file".  It doesn't matter where it physically lives;
+          that will be sorted out by Forrest.

+<a name="N1025E"></a><a name="resolve-site-uris"></a>
+<h4>Resolving site: URIs</h4>
+<p>
+            So how does "<span class="codefrag">site:todo</span>" get resolved?  A full answer
+            is provided in the <a href="#implementation">implementation</a>
+            section.  Essentially, the "<span class="codefrag">todo</span>" part has
+            "<span class="codefrag">/site//</span>" prepended, and "<span class="codefrag">/@href</span>" appended, to
+            form the string "<span class="codefrag">/site//todo/@href</span>".  This is
+            then used as an XPath expression in <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> to identify the string
+            replacement, in this case "<span class="codefrag">todo.html</span>"
+          </p>
+<p>
+            Thus by modifying the XPath prefix and suffix, almost any XML
+            format can be accommodated.
+          </p>
+<div class="frame note">
+<div class="label">Note</div>
+<div class="content">
+            Actually, the XPath is applied to XML generated dynamically from
+            <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span>.  The generated XML has each "@href" fully expanded ("absolutized")
+            and dot-dots (..) added as needed ("relativized").
+          </div>
+</div>
+<p>
+            Notice that the "//" allows us any degree of specificity when linking.
+            In the sample <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> above, both "<span class="codefrag">site:new_content_type</span>" and
+            "<span class="codefrag">site:about/your-project/new_content_type</span>" identify the
+            same node.  It is up to you to decide how specific to make links.  One
+            nice benefit of link "ambiguity" is that <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> can be reorganized
+            without breaking links.  For example, "new_content_type" currently
+            identifies a node in "your-project".  By leaving that fact unspecified
+            in "<span class="codefrag">site:new_content_type</span>" we are free to make
+            "new_content_type" its own XML file, or a node in another file, in
+            another category.

+<h4>ext: URIs: linking to external URLs</h4>
+<p>
+            The "<span class="codefrag">ext:</span>" scheme was created partly to demonstrate the
+            ease with which new schemes can be defined, and partly for practical
+            use. The "<span class="codefrag">ext:</span>" URIs identify nodes in <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> below the
+            &lt;external-refs&gt; node.  By convention, nodes here link to URLs
+            outside the website, and are not listed in the menu generated from
+            the <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> file.
+          </p>
+<p>Here is a <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> snippet illustrating "<span class="codefrag">external-refs</span>":</p>
+<pre class="code">
+&lt;site&gt;
+  ...
+  &lt;external-refs&gt;
+    &lt;mail-archive href="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com"/&gt;
+    &lt;xml.apache.org href="http://xml.apache.org/"&gt;
+      &lt;commons href="commons/"&gt;
+        &lt;resolver href="components/resolver/"/&gt;
+      &lt;/commons&gt;
+    &lt;/xml.apache.org&gt;
+    ...
+  &lt;/external-refs&gt;
+&lt;/site&gt;</pre>
+<p>
+            As an example, &lt;link href="ext:commons/resolver"&gt;
+            generates the link
+            <a class="external" href="http://xml.apache.org/commons/components/resolver/">http://xml.apache.org/components/resolver/</a>
+          
+</p>
+<p>
+            The general rules of <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> and "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" linking apply.
+            Specifically, the "@href" aggregation makes defining large numbers of
+            related URLs easy.
+          </p>
+<a name="N102CF"></a><a name="source-uris"></a>
+<h4>Theory: source URIs</h4>
+<p>
+            The "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" URIs like "<span class="codefrag">site:todo</span>" are examples of
+            "<em>source</em>" URIs, in contrast to the more usual
+            <span class="codefrag">foo.html</span> style URIs, which we here call
+            "<em>destination</em>" URIs.  This introduces an important concept: that
+            the "<em>source</em>" URI space exists and is independent of that of the
+            generated site.  Furthermore, URIs (i.e. links) are first-class objects,
+            on par with XML documents, in that just as XML content is transformed,
+            so are the links.  Within the source URI space, we can have all sorts of
+            interesting schemes (person: mail: google: java: etc). These will
+            all be translated into plain old "<span class="codefrag">http:</span>" or relative URIs
+            in the destination URI space, just like exotic XML source formats are
+            translated into plain old HTML in the output.
+          </p>

+<h4>Future schemes</h4>
+<p>
+            So far, the "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" and "<span class="codefrag">ext:</span>" schemes are defined.

+            project pages.  In a project like <a class="external" href="http://ant.apache.org/">Apache
+              Ant</a>, each Task could be identified with
+            <span class="codefrag">task:&lt;taskname&gt;</span>, e.g. <span class="codefrag">task:pathconvert</span>.

+<p>
+        The "<span class="codefrag">site:</span>" scheme and associated ideas for <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> were
+        originally described in <a class="external" href="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=forrest-dev&m=103444028129281&w=2">the 'linkmap' RT
+          email</a> to the forrest-dev list (RT means 'random thought'; a
+        Cocoon invention).   Only section 2 has been implemented, and there is
+        still significant work required to implement the full system
+        described.  In particular, there is much scope for automating the
+        creation of <span class="codefrag">site.xml</span> (section 4).  However, what is currently implemented
+        gains most of the advantages of the system.
