    Change HTML TOC to index.html

    I want to always have the TOC file for the multiple HTML output to be named index.html. I see this is controlled by the args.xhtml.toc argument, and in the buildtargets code it says:

           

    Which pulls the args.xhtml.toc value from the map filename, while a bit earlier it says:


       
         
       

     

    Any suggestions on how I can keep from pulling the filename and just using the default value of index instead?

    Why not just replace ${args.xhtml.toc} in the mapper with the literal value “index”? It should work, but you'll have to do it again the next time you upgrade XMetaL or the version of the OT that XMetaL uses.

    Disclaimer: Usually a mapper is used when processing more than one file. Having not seen the rest of the target, I cannot say which other files, if any, might be affected.

    Thanks, but that didn't work. Also tried changing the value in the command line invoker file. It looks like some other file other than build_dita2xhtml.xml or ditatargets.xml might be setting this, but I can't find where. According to the DITA OT doc., it should default to index.

    Got it. I added the following line to build_dita2xhtml.xml and commented out the existing mapper line:

               

    Interesting if I make the to value “index.html” it reverts to the using the input file name as the toc name, but if I use index.htm it doesn't.
