Section 41.1 Common Options

These are options that might affect several conversions, though the influence may vary from one conversion to the next.

Subsection 41.1.1 Common Chunking Option

Many outputs are produced as a collection of several files, others may only produce a single file. A chunk is a generic, informal term for a portion of an output, typically a single file. This is given as a level, see Section 27.2 for more about levels. The specification is in the attribute

/publication/common/chunking/@level

with a whole number as the value (generally 0 is allowed). This is critical for the construction of HTML output, and ignored for output.

Subsection 41.1.2 Table of Contents Level Option

The depth of the entries in a Table of Contents is given as a level, see Section 27.2 for more about levels. The specification is in the attribute

/publication/common/tableofcontents/@level

with a whole number as the value. A value of 0 is used to indicate that no Table of Contents is desired. Absent this setting, reasonable defaults are supplied, which can vary by conversion and document type.
