[liblouis-liblouisxml] Re: Missing spaces in translated text

Paul,

 

The test5.xml that was attached to the previous message is the file I was
talking about. When you say it looked OK, do you mean in XML or in Braille?

 

 

Best regards from Ohio, U.S.A.,

 

Vic

I had similar behavour with <em> at the beginning of a paragraph. In my case
it didn't tag the first word. This I believe was due to some weird tags
added by MS Word so the word xml tagging was split up. You could try
creating a blank document with a heading 1, so it validates, then paste that
paragraph in. check the results. then do the same document, but this time
type it in fresh. check those results. If you find they are different it's
the bug I had, but with <strong>.

Anyway more help with the Save-as-DAISY plug-in is available through their
forum: http://www.daisy.org/forums/save-as-daisy-microsoft

John,

There is a space between the </strong> and the next <strong> tags. This is
how the Word DAISY plug-in saved the XML. I thought it was a strange way to
save it too. There was nothing unusual about the Word document. The whole
phrase was bolded. Do you know if there is any way to get in contact with
the DAISY plug[ins creators to report something like this?

Hi Vic,

The problem is that each word is individually enclosed in <strong> tags.
If you enclose the whole phrase in a single pair of tags the problem
should go away. You might also try putting a space after the </strong>
ending tags.
