    Hi all,

    In our DTD we have elements and to represent 'list' and 'list-item'. Is it possible to specify CSS (or in other way) so that and are displayed as List in XMetal?

    point 1point 2

    should display like:

    • point 1
    • point 2

    Probably the best thing to do here is to check the Journalist sample. The CSS for it is in the Display subfolder.
    Elements to look at: OrderedList, ListItem, ItemizedList

    You can also enable list editing using the CTM file's “Treat As” properties (that is what it appears as in XMetaL Developer and in the Customization Guide). Once the CTM file is generated the section containing these properties is inserted as (in case you want to try to hand code this based on the Journalist example). This enables the tab and shift+tab feature (for indenting/outdenting nestable lists) and the two buttons for lists on the Formatting toolbar.
