Common Attribute Parameter Entities -- Parameter entities which define the common attributes

Synopsis

These parameter entities define the attributes that are considered "common". Common attributes occur on every element. They are provided by either the %common.attrib; parameter entity or the %idreq.common.attrib; parameter entity. Those parameter entities are defined in terms of the others, listed here.

Description

The following parameter entities define the common attributes in DocBook:

%common.attrib;

Parameterizes the common attributes on elements with an optional ID.

%id.attrib; %lang.attrib; %remap.attrib; %xreflabel.attrib; %revisionflag.attrib; %effectivity.attrib; %local.common.attrib;
idreq.common.attrib

Parameterizes the common attributes on elements with a required ID.

%idreq.attrib; %lang.attrib; %remap.attrib; %xreflabel.attrib; %revisionflag.attrib; %effectivity.attrib; %local.common.attrib;
%effectivity.attrib;

Parameterizes the effectivity attributes.

The effectivity attributes allow you to indicate when the content of an element applies to only a certain class of hardware or software or a particular level of user experience.

%arch.attrib; %conformance.attrib; %os.attrib; %revision.attrib; %userlevel.attrib; %vendor.attrib; %local.effectivity.attrib;

tip

If you are not using effectivity attributes in your documents, removing them from your DTD, with a customization layer, greatly reduces the size of the ESIS. This can dramatically improve the processing speed of some applications.

%id.attrib;

Parameterizes the definition of the ID attribute.

Id is an identifying string for the element. It must be unique at least within the document and must begin with a letter.
