Part 1. HTML Processing Instruction Reference

$Id: pi.xsl 9848 2014-01-17 22:44:39Z bobstayton $


This is generated reference documentation for all user-specifiable processing instructions (PIs) in the DocBook XSL stylesheets for HTML output.


You add these PIs at particular points in a document to cause specific “exceptions” to formatting/output behavior. To make global changes in formatting/output behavior across an entire document, it’s better to do it by setting an appropriate stylesheet parameter (if there is one).
