Hi all- I've decided to dive into Structured FM and see if I can make these Release Notes easier to manage. Since we don't yet have a need for markup, I'm starting with just the EDD so at least we'll have some of the benefits of a structured environment in place before we get other departments involved (if that ever happens). I have a basic EDD written, and am working on the conversion table so I can move the little content that I already have into the structured environment for the next release.
Here's a basic rundown of the document structure: The Release Notes book contains a cover/copyright info file, TOC, and 4-5 chapters. (I'm not even going to worry about the non-chapter files at this point...) Each chapter is a numbered Section. Each Section consists of a section number (SNumber), title (STitle), an introductory paragraph (Para), and one or more SubSections. Each SubSection consists of a Title, a bulleted list of CRs, and the CR descriptions. Each ListItem is a cross-reference to the CR, which is in the same SubSection. Each CR consists of a Title and a Description. The Description for the CR is defined as one or more paragraphs (Para+) and zero or more lists (List?). Most of this works fine, although I haven't tested the cross-references yet. That'll be another email.... For now, the question is, what's wrong with my conversion table that I can't get the Description element to be wrapped properly around the paragraphs and lists that follow a CR Title? If I specify E:Para as the object(s) to be wrapped in the Description element, the intro paragraph that follows the Section Title (STitle) is wrapped too. Which it shouldn't be. Only paragraphs (and lists) that fall under the CR Title (Title[CR], as opposed to Title[SubSection] or STitle) should be wrapped in the Description element. Here's the relevant snippet from the conversion table (I hope it's readable...): Wrap this object or objects In this element With this qualifier RE:RootElement Book E:SNumber, E:STitle, E:Para, E:List*, E:SubSection* Section P:0 SectionNumber SNumber P:0 ChapterTitle Stitle Section E:Title[SubSection], (E:Para* | E:List* | CR*)* SubSection P:B Body Text Para P:1 Heading 1 Title SubSection P:2 Heading 2 Title CR E:Title[CR], (E:Para*, E:List?) CR[Type = "Known Issue"] CR E:Para[CR]+, E:List[CR]? Description I hope this is clear enough. My mind is reeling! (And I'm sure the solution is much simpler than the question...) Thanks for any and all advice! Lin
