Description dnwilson 2006-07-04 01:40:48 UTC
The proposal is to to add a new object that is similar to bookmarks (com.sun.star.text.Bookmark). This extended bookmark would also carry a DOM tree property. This enhancement is required to support the Bibliographic enhancements. The data fields in the bibliography need to support complex formatted text and objects and this is not possible with the current text field. For example some scientific document titles need to be able to display words in Italics. Mathematical titles need to represent equations. I am sure that that this feature would also be of benefit in other areas. In discussing how to achieve this, Oliver Specht, has advised that the best approach was to enhance the bookmark object. A possible solution is "to add a new object that is similar to bookmarks (com.sun.star.text.Bookmark). This extended bookmark would also carry a DOM tree property. This 'bookmark' can span over formatted text longer than a paragraph. The user can modify the text inside of this bookmark easily. An interface to access the new elements needs to be implemented (sorted by document position). The DOM interfaces are in com.sun.star.xml.dom. (e.g. XDocument.idl, XNode.idl, XElement.idl) There's also a service com.sun.star.xml.dom.DocumentBuilder available that supports the creation of DOM trees. The bibliography component works on the DOM tree and can manipulate it independently. In case of using a field the component has to set the resulting string representation of the reference at this field."

Enhanced Bookmarks to Include Formatted Text is required to implement many of Bibliographic facility enhancements.
