> hello everybody,
>                              I am  a beginner at XML.....just started
> working on it a couple of months back. I am in the process of preparing
> web-based documentation using XML and related tools. I'm sure i'll be
> posting a lot of doubts on this mailing list, most of which will be really
> fundamental and basic stuff so please bear with me :) Today I have a
> couple of doubts and I was hoping somebody will be able to help me.
> 1.) I need to start my document with a table of contents. Is is possible
> to generate a TOC using XSL in such a way that it consists two cols, the
> name of the topic in one col and the page no in the other (as in any TOC).
> However i want the topic names to be hyperlinked so that if someone were
> to click on the topic he/she should be led to the relevant portion of the
> document.
> 2.) I want to wrap my text around an accompanying image. The way i am
> thinking of doing that is by defining a 3 row/ 3 col HTML table. The first
> cell of the first row spans 3 cols. The first cell of  the second row
> spans 1 col and the 2nd cell spans 2 cols. The first cell of the 3rd row
> spans 3 cols so it is similar to the first cell of the first row. Thus
> what I will have is text that continues to flow from (row cell1) to (row 2
> cell2) and then onto (row 3 cell1) with the image in (row2) cell1. I guess
> what I want to know is whether it is possible to "split" an XML element
> (using XSL) in such a way that part of its contents are displayed in a
> particular way and the other part of it in another way (or location, in
> this case text from the same element is supposed to be split among rows1,2
> & 3).
> I hope somebody will be  able to guide me.
