Setup Road-faq

To set up Road-faq

  • Extract files -- Extract or road.tgz [Upper-left on this page].
  • Browse the XML files -- Browse road/road-faq/xml with an XSLT-enabled browser that supports the document function (e.g., Firefox or IE).
  • Setup XSL -- Install an XSLT 1.0 or 2.0 processor. The transforms were tested with saxon8.jar as included with Oxygen XML.
  • Schedule topic-map.xml -- Road uses topic-map.xml to resolve rf:ifref references. The file contains all items and sections defined in topics.xml. Update the file with
        java -jar /usr/local/saxon/saxon8.jar xml/topics.xml xsl/make-topic-map.xsl >xml/topic-map.xml
  • Edit content and transforms -- Add content or improve the presentation.
