I have a similar requirement. Was going to post this self-same question today! > I can't change the DTD ( SGML one, I transform sgml instances in xml > before my fop treatment ) Exactly my situation. If XML had retained marked sections then I could do away with the SGML master copy altogether. (I always said that the non-inclusion of marked sections in the XML spec was stupid. But I also said that the original goal of XML being implemented in 2 weeks by a computing science student was impossible.) > ... that specifies that the revisions bars > must appear in front of the text which is between the tags > <startOfRevision/> and <endOfRevision/> ; note that these tags > are empty, and are included elements, in SGML sense ! I'm using the DocBook DTD and am contractualy limited to what additions I can make to the DTD itself. Adding general entities is about the limit. > Do you think I can display those bars > > - with XSL (if possible, and I think it's not ) > - by inserting invisible marks in the PDF and have a post treatment on the PDK > with the Adobe SDK. So, what kind of mark can I use ?? I don't have the option of using Adobe products. So I'm after a pure SGML/DSSSL/XML/XSL solution.
