How to unsubscribe (and other useful information)
This information is posted to the XSL-List (and the XSL-List Digest) at regular intervals under the subject line "How to unsubscribe (and other useful information)". Topics: - Posting - Do Not Cross-Post - Replies Go To The List - Use Short Quotes of Previous Messages in Replies - Do Not Use HTML Attachments - Daily Digest - Unsubscribing from the XSL-List - Unsubscribing from the XSL-List Digest - If you stop getting XSL-List messages - Archive - Further information on XSL - Message Subject Prefixes - Reporting Bugs in Software - DSSSList -- The DSSSL Users' Mailing List - Contact POSTING ======= Only subscribers can post to XSL-List, and only from the address they used when they subscribed. There is no restriction on what may be posted to the XSL-List provided it is related to XSL. Items concerning XML but without a direct connection to XSL should be posted to a XML-related list instead of to the XSL-List. Items related to DSSSL should be posted to the DSSSList. Do not begin your subject line with "help" or "subscribe" since the list software will bounce the message because it looks like is an administrative request. Do not use un-informative subject lines like "Urgent", "Easy question", or "Problem". Instead, use a meaningful subject line that will make sense to the people whose help you are trying to get. It is best to start a new message for a new thread. Do not start a new thread by replying to an unrelated message and just changing the subject line, since the header of your message will contain references to the previous message and your new message will appear in the archive as one of the replies to the original message. Both subscribers to XSL-List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and subscribers to XSL-List-Digest@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx should post their messages to XSL-List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, and the messages will be received by both subscribers to the list and subscribers to the digest. DO NOT CROSS-POST ================= Cross-posting to the XSL-List and to another list, even XML-Dev or the DSSSList, is often counter-productive unless everybody who replies to the thread is on both lists. No list's archive will contain the complete thread, cross-posts from non-subscribers continuing the thread will bounce, and XSL-List subscribers who are not also on the other list will only see half of the thread, as will those on the other list who are not also on the XSL-List. Subscribers to both lists may see two copies of the message, annoying them as well. REPLIES GO TO THE LIST ====================== The reply address of XSL-List messages (and of digests) is xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx so REPLIES GO TO THE LIST BY DEFAULT. If you want to reply to just the author of a post, you should change the "To:" field in your reply. USE SHORT QUOTES OF PREVIOUS MESSAGES IN REPLIES ================================================ Please do not quote entire messages just to add a few lines at the beginning or end. Instead, quote the parts to which you are directly replying or quote enough to establish the context. Everybody on the list has already received the message that you are quoting, and anyone searching the archive will find your message and the previous message listed under the same thread. Subscribers to the XSL-List will just ignore most of the quoted messages and move to the next post, but subscribers to the XSL-List Digest will mostly have to page past the quoted messages to reach the next material in which they are interested in reading. DO NOT USE HTML ATTACHMENTS =========================== Please do not include HTML versions of your message or other miscellaneous cruft as attachments to your post. A small proportion of list subscribers may be able to read your fancy text, but a larger proportion won't, and the majority of subscribers to the XSL-List Digest will have to scroll past your attachments to get to the next part that they can read. DAILY DIGEST ============ Daily digests -- copies of a whole days XSL-List messages (or a 40,000 character chunk, whichever comes first) sent as one email message -- are available. Not only is it one mail message containing all of that day's XSL-List messages, it averages half the bytes of the individual messages since it doesn't include the overhead of the mail headers from each message. To unsubscribe from the list and subscribe to the digest, send mail to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with the following two lines as the body of your message: unsubscribe xsl-list subscribe xsl-list-digest UNSUBSCRIBING FROM THE XSL-LIST =============================== To unsubscribe from the XSL-list, send mail to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with "unsubscribe xsl-list" as the body of your message. UNSUBSCRIBING FROM THE XSL-LIST DIGEST ====================================== To unsubscribe from the XSL-List Digest, send mail to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with "unsubscribe xsl-list-digest" as the body of your message. IF YOU STOP GETTING XSL-LIST MESSAGES ===================================== Ordinarily, mail bounces back to xsl-list-owner only because a user's account has been closed on their system without their unsubscribing from the list. If mail to an address bounces for an extended period, that address may be removed from the list. If you stop receiving XSL-List message, you may have been removed because mail to you was bouncing. You are not being picked on, and you can just rejoin the list. ARCHIVE ======= XSL-List messages are archived at http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/archive. FURTHER INFORMATION ON XSL ========================== The W3C information on XSL is at http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL. The current XSL Working Draft is at http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl. The original XSL note is at http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-XSL. An excellent source of information about XSL is the XSL page of Robin Cover's SGML/XML Web Page at http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/xsl.html. An XSL FAQ by Dave Pawson is available at http://freespace.virgin.net/ben.pawson/. MESSAGE SUBJECT PREFIXES ======================== Since there is a lot of discussion of the new XSL Working Draft on the XSL-List, please use this system of prefixes in the subject lines of messages as a shorthand to indicate which part of the WD you are discussing. The prefix and the "real" subject of your message should be separated by " : " as in the following examples. Please use these prefixes wherever possible: it will make life easier for your fellow subscribers, and it will also make life easier for people searching the archive. SECTION NUMBERS - Use the section number enclosed in square brackets: Subject: [3.16.7] : Are crayon drawings supported? ISSUES - Use "Issue" and the issue name as it appears in the WD: Subject: Issue(pattern-pi-target) : Should match on PIs XSL ELEMENTS - Use the "xsl:" prefix and the XSL defined element name: Subject: xsl:stylesheet : "stylesheet" should be hyphenated FLOW OBJECTS - Use the "fo:" prefix and the flow object name: Subject: fo:graphic : Handling 3D? PROPERTIES - Use the property name, even if it isn't really much of a shorthand: Subject: block-justification-letterspace-max-remove : Negative lengths? REPORTING BUGS IN SOFTWARE ========================== Bugs in software should firstly be reported to its author rather than to the XSL-List. DSSSLIST -- THE DSSSL USERS' MAILING LIST ========================================= Mulberry Technologies also provides the DSSSList -- the DSSSL Users' Mailing List.
