Readers of JATS-List,Mulberry Technologies: A Consultancy Specializing in SGML and XML
We are seeking suggestions on how to improve the Preview XSLT stylesheets which are designed to convert data tagged in version 3.0 of the Journal Publishing Tag Set to HTML or PDF (via XSL-FO). We intend to extend them forward, to work with JATS 1.0 when it is available and backward, to work with NLM 2.3.
Do you have suggestions on other ways in which these stylesheets can/should be improved?
Our design goals remain the same -- support a "greatest common factor" subset of tag usage in JATS Blue (Publishing), with most elements and all common elements supported; produce simple and sane HTML and PDF results; support local customization by means of any or all of the following: (1) enhancing or replacing CSS for the HTML display; (2) layering XSLT customizations using the xsl:import mechanism; and (3) pipelining inputs and outputs through separate XSLT transformations or other processes (as demonstrated in the release). These stylesheets are not designed to produce publication-ready output, but they should provide a sound basis for further development.
We are interested in:
* What capabilities or features would you like to see in the stylesheets that are not currently provided?
* On what platform(s) have you run XSLT stylesheets (either these stylesheets or others) to process JATS data? What are your favorite tools and processors? In particular, have you found it useful to apply XSLT to XML in web browsers (client-side processing); and if so, which browsers have you used?
* Have you used the version 3.0 NLM/NCBI JATS Preview stylesheets? If so, what are your target formats (HTML, PDF or other)?
* Have you customized the version 3.0 stylesheets with your own CSS or XSLT? Do you have any advice on how the stylesheets might better support customization?
* How can we improve these stylesheets?
