Imported graphic entities in local subset when saving in XMetaLOctober 28, 2010 at 9:04 pmParticipants 4Replies 5Last Activity 12 years, 1 month ago
Does anyone know how we can stop XMetaL from importing graphic entities in the local subset when saving an XML file?
[u]Before saving in XMetaL[/u]
[u]After saving in XMetaL[/u]
All our graphic entities are declared in external entity files which makes the re-declaration of these in the local subset redundant and it affects portability.
This happens in XMetaL Author 4.5, 5.5 and 6.0
We did search this forum, the configuration guide and the programmer's guide but to no avail.
Any help is greatly appreciated

I'm not aware of this issue. Can you submit some files that demonstrate the issue? If you prefer not to post things here please send them through the standard support channel after opening a support case.duboisy October 29, 2010 at 4:31 pm

I took the time to create a minimalist version of our environment to see if I could find a solution but to no avail. Since this is an issue other developers might experience, I prefer to continue this thread.
The attached zip file must be unzipped with the folder structure, the local environment uses relative paths.
In the XML-Dev folder, we find the file dgr-8-en.xml which refers to images through its MediaObject/@src element/attribute. Open this file in XMetaL (I used 4.5), add some text and save the file. All graphic entities declarations are now imported in the DTD subset, immediately after our language switch .

Although this thread has been quiet for a while, the example package was downloaded ten times. It would be very interesting to know if there are different results (with different versions or environment)
Any update on your end on this issue? If not, should I open a support case?

We can reproduce what you are seeing, but the number of options to try to work around this might be many.
I think it is best that we try to iron this out through email (and then maybe post what you ultimately do here later).
