RE: tag minimisation
> test for text(), if it is there write out the element, else don't. Sure. However, with stylesheets totalling 80k, and DTD's specifying 1000's of elements in all possible combinations (with entities containing themselves... but thats another gripe) its a bit much to be expected to test each node for text(), or for that matter sprinkle the stylesheet with #160's. Its such a small issue that causes huge problems, I can't see any benefit whatsoever of enforcing minimisation at this time. > -----Original Message----- > From: Robert Koberg [mailto:rob@xxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: 10 September 2002 17:52 > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: RE: tag minimisation > > > Hi, > > test for text(), if it is there write out the element, else don't. > > -Rob > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > > [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of > Andrew Welch > > Sent: Tuesday, September 10, 2002 8:27 AM > > To: Xsl-List (E-mail) > > Subject: tag minimisation > > > > > > > > When elements like <div></div> get minimised by the > processor to <div/> > > it's *really* frustrating. > > > > I cannot stress how annoying it is to find that because you have an > > element in your data that is empty, you get a minimised > ouput element > > where all following elements 'inherit' the style... > > > > For example: > > > > <div style="font-weight:bold"/> > > <div>foo</div> > > > > will give you a bold 'foo'. > > > > I appreciate that html/css is at fault, but surely its easy to add a > > minimisation='no' extension until browsers catch up...?
