Using XRefsyle and Olinks

Specific xrefstyle for ulink

Since version 0.2.7 you can use the xrefstyle attribute like you would do with the DocBook Project stylesheets for HTML output.

Furthermore, you can also use olinks. Note that Olinking is used in the PDF version of this manual, in the section called “Change History”.

Actually, the common DocBook Project stylesheets version 1.72 are now used by dblatex to handle all of these features.

These features are fully described in the DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide book by Bob Stayton. In particular, the following sections cover these topics:

Specific xrefstyle for ulink

Dblatex defines a template that can be applied through the xrefstyle attribute to format an ulink. The template has the following general form: url[.{show|hide}][.{after|infoot}]

The principle is that the show and hide parts override locally for this ulink the parameter, and the after and infoot parts override locally the ulink.footnotes parameter.

When only one part is defined, only one setup is overriden, and the other setup depends on the corresponding global parameter.

See to have several examples of use of the ulink xrefstyle template.
