Section 27.6 Styling

The PreTeXt conversion to HTML creates standard HTML elements, with styles controlled by CSS via class names (and not so much via the element names). As evidence of this, building HTML without the accompanying Javascript and CSS renders in a readable fashion, albeit quite plain (as one would expect). This section describes ways that a publisher can influence the style.

Subsection 27.6.1 Colors

The publisher file may be used to specify alternate CSS files. See the reference material for how to do this (Subsection 40.4.7). The default file, colors_default.css contains documentation on how to design a theme.

Subsection 27.6.2 Table of Contents, Knowls, and Banner

In a manner analagous to how colors may be adjusted, so may other parts of the HTML UI, see Subsection 40.4.7). As of 2019-12-08, replacing more than one of these at a time should be considered experimental.
