2151Re: [XSL-FO] common sense and word of rec (basic-link)
- Aug 12, 2002As a followup,
I would like to admit that although XSL FO Recommendation can and probably should
be improved; almost every case where common sense is in contradiction with the
recommended behaviour, the latter turns out to be more consistent and logical
at closer investigation.
Consider a case when a basic-link with internal-destination is nested
within a basic-link with external-destination. If the anchor is built
of all descendant areas, then where should the link attached to descendants
of the innermost basic-link point to?
Should it point just to external-destination? Or to both external and internal?
Where in the recommendation is it described?
It seems to me that the least contradictory approach is one chosen
by the recommendation, that is that the link is attached to the
area generated by a basic-link element. It permits a comprehendable implementation
in general case. I don't see how other approaches can be clearly expressed within
the current logic of XSL FO.
