with a vague view to something a bit like automation, I'm examining some very unexciting graphics … ladders/stacks of boxes with text labels in, usually two or three columns per graphic.
I told you they were unexciting :-}
It seems to me that something like this would be a good candidate for generated svg. I've got as far as writing a test-file, and I've hit a problem: FM and Illustrator take the file in their stride, but Mozilla and my currently-preferred DITA tool XML Mind complain. As far I can understand, they are not happy with the <use> option, which they feel ought to be an element …
If anyone in this generally knowledgeable forum can give me any help writing universally acceptable svg, or even can just confirm I'm on a hiding to nothing trying to use <use>, I'd be grateful. Sample code block follows, in case you need something to check.
cross-posting seemed legitimate, especially as the topic was outside the primary focus of everyday Framing … so here's the answer from the XML Mind support team: I needed an extra declaration to tell the processor about the <use> tag.
