Subject Re: Generating html help
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2001 13:19:51 GMT
There is already some XSLT for doing this as part of the Jakarta Taglibs
project. It is contained in the 'taglib-doc-kit' developed by Scott
The standard build process used by the Log, IO and XTags libraries use this
to generate the HTML documentation.

Try getting a snapshot of CVS and looking in the taglib-doc-kit/xml
directory and you should see the taglib-doc.xsl stylesheet that does most of
what you need.

Note that the taglib doc kit uses a superset of a TLD document (TagML we
could call it) to allow extra information to be included in the XML document
such that all the HTML documentation and the TLD can all be generated from a
single source XML document.

The example 'taglib directory' web app that is in the
jakarta-taglibs-sandbox area of CVS right now also uses the 'TagML'
documents to allow online browsing of tag libraries.
