I’m using DITA and I‘d like to create hazard statements.
In which files can I define the styles? In the DITA templates
or in the EDDs?
Is it possible to create the hazard statements as tables?
Which steps must be done?
layout issues are done in your templates perhaps you have different Layouts for editing or Publishing, so have have to fit your Output templates "$STRUCTDIR\xml\DITA\outputTemplates" (Path is defined in ditafm-output.ini) and perhaps in your templates located and referenced in your DITA XML application.
Perhaps, depending on your Needs, you have to fit pgf-format assigned within the edd, which is also located in your DITA XML application and you have to reimport these changes to your templates.
You can also create tables, but this means specialization and customization of DITA itself and your DITA XML Application. I would recommend to use DITA-Hazardstatement structure for editing and than adding and XSLT for Transformation when you publish your content.
Hope this helps
thanks for your answer.
I’m sorry, but I think I need some more help.
I tried to create the hazardatatements as follows:
Result: The paragraph styles in the template are changed, but the lines are not visible.
Where do I have to define the lines?
How can I position the hazardsymbol?
You also mentioned XSLT to create tables. I’m not going to publish via DITA-OT. Therefore that’s no option, I think. Ist hat correct?
lines (Frame above/below mechanism right?) are defined on reference page.
So you need also to import the reference pages to your DITA-Template. But perhaps it's a better idea to copy the lines by Hand. I don't know. Or at least save a copy of your unstructured template and remove all reference pages except the one which contains your lines. This makes sure only this reference page is imported to your DITA-Template
sorry. I didn't answer die XSLT question.
FrameMaker opens and saves XML files with an XML Application. So it does for DITA-XML-Files as well. XML Applications are definied in structapps.fm.
There you can put in an XSLT for pre-processing (Opening XMLs in FM) and for post-processing (Saving FM-Content back to XML). And here you can do whatever you like.
But: Take care in which kind o process you are doing such manipulation. Changing hazardstatements to table has to effect Publishing process and not the editing process. So you need an XML application strategy for your Publishing Scenarios.
Hope this helps
thanks for your help!
I hate to hijack this thread, but hoping someone still active on this thread can help me with my Hazard Statement in FrameMaker Dita. I am trying to format the banner that FrameMaker places when I assign an attribute. Please see thread here: https://forums.adobe.com/message/10480595#10480595
