Re: Getting Entity File Names
I am able to get a list of the titles without a problem. I want to build a table from the titles and file name so I can create another conversion on another group of documents have have the titles embedded and link back to the individual files which are well-formed. I want to get a listing such as: <filename>foo1.xml</filename> <title>This is a title</title> I want to use this to put links into another document: <p>... see <xref href="foo1.xml">This is a title</xref><p> I am grabbing the entity filename and title as a way of including links in another document (which I can change). I actually did this once before with a file that had IDs and it was a really simple process. I created an Omnimark script from the XSLT since XSLT isn't the best 'search and replace' program. I was hoping to do the same thing this time but without ID's it is proving difficult.
