EMS NG PDF and XSLT - Disclaimer
« on: August 23, 2012, 03:08:15 AM »
Some of the solutions and workarounds posted in this section mention modifying the XSLT the is provided with the EMS NG software. This practice is not recommended for most EMS NG developers due to the potential for introducing new errors or in producing PDF documents that may not comply with all technical manual requirements. These workarounds may only work in a specific version of the EMS NG Publisher and may not work in all situations. None of these recommendations have been tested independently to verify that they would work with all EMS NG source and in all situations. Unless otherwise stated in the forum thread, none of these solutions are recommended or endorsed by TACOM or the current EMS NG contractor.

For any of the recommended solutions for modifying XSLT, use at your own risk. Be sure to make copies of the files that you modify so that you can restore without having to reinstall the EMS NG publishing software. These solutions should only be tried by developers who are comfortable with XSLT and XSL:FO as used by the Antenna House publishing software. Any modifications should be communicated with the program office for your EMS NG project. It is also recommended that these issues be reported to TACOM to see if there are known issues or reasons for why the text is being processed as is in your version of the EMS NG publisher.
