Hope this is bold.

What's the difference?

Not a lot says I.

That's enough. Enough fooling around I say!

Okay. Down to the business of writing a diary entry.

My Adventures into XSL

I had written a customization layer for Norm's stylesheets and today I broke it up into pieces. Trying to find the best way to break it up is not too easy. Depends how much stuff is going to be customized is the determination for now. I found out how to turn off the formalized procedure using the formal.procedure, but am stumped as to how to customize it into the role attribute.

<xsl:template match="procedure">
  <xsl:if test="@role='informal'">
    <xsl:param name="formal.procedure">0</xsl:param>
  </xsl:if>
<insert rest of procedure template>
</xsl:template>
The above doesn't work well. Need to ask DV or LotR about it tomorrow. Just looked at bugzilla and will prolly try to fix jfleck's bugs wrt the procedure tag. I haven't heard back from the gnome-doc-list about the stylesheet modularization proposal.

Need to write something for Gnumeric's documentation since I do have a deadline of Dec. 1

Life

This week is homecoming at OSU and boy am I excited. Pep rally Friday night to play at, 2 mile parade to march in, marching band practice right afterwards with hundreds of HS kiddies around, and don't forget the football game we're going to lose. No, win...we have the same conference record as KState (0-4) so there might be hope. Oh, Nebraska will trounces OU too. Cannot think of anything else to ramble about. Bye all you who actually read this.
