Website broken links - DocBook XSLT Stylesheets

Postby rp4200 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:33 am

There appears to be a problem on the following web page:
- http://www.openoffice.org/xml/xmerge/docbook/

Briefly, all the links to [DocBook XSLT Stylesheets] appear to be broken (leading to a “404 web page not found” error). I tried searching for perhaps an updated correct link but could not find anything.

For example, the following “(All available here)” link goes to a non-existent web page:

======
1. Download the DocBook XSLT Stylesheets and OpenOffice.org Style Template
This method ensures ... it is necessary to download the following:
- The relevant XSLT stylesheets for the XML transformations (All available here)

======
Here is the broken link that the above “(All available here)” example leads to:
- http://www.openoffice.org/xml/source/browse/xml/xmerge/java/org/openoffice/xmerge/converter/xml/xslt/docbook/

Similarly, the links in the table just below the above sentence are all broken, too:
- docbooktosoffheadings.xsl - docbooktosoffheadings.xsl
- sofftodocbookheadings_article.xsl - sofftodocbookheadings_chapter.xsl

Looking at the same kind of DocBook web page in other languages did not help -- they all appeared to have the same problem.

Any help regarding getting those links fixed would be appreciated.

menu:Tools>"XML Filter Settings..." indicates to me that the import/export filters and the template for DocBook are pre-installed.

You are running WIndows, propably 64 bit.
The XSLT filters depend on Java.
OpenOffice for Windows runs on 32 bit.
Java components for OpenOffice on WIndows require a 32-bit Java runtime: https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp Choose the "Windows Offline" download and install it. Call Tools>Options>Java, select the Java which is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\... and restart the office.

Now you should be able to access the XML filters via menu:Tools>"XML Filter Settings...".
If you don't see any DocBook filter, re-run the OpenOffice installer and add the additional file filters from the optional components.

You could also install https://libreoffice.org/ which is availlable as a 64-bit version for MS Windows and make sure that the additional filters are included.

They are not installed by default - they are an option. I raised a bug report and they will be installed by default in the next release.

Issue 127770 - Save As ... DocBook is not available in W7 or W10 but is available in Linux and XP
LO 6.3.5.2, Windows 10 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
