This is my list of tasks along with their status as of today. I will need to break down the remaining tasks into smaller items which will each need a bit of research (for instance, for 39 of the 40 images I need to render the caption in landscape mode, which I think will have to be done using the XSL:FO
reference-orientation attribute on
<fo:simple-page-master>, but I've never used that before so I'll need to do some reading first).
DONE 1. Check the intro text in the master doc is in fact the latest (from the docx file). DONE: 2. Create a batch file to expand the master with xincludes. You're better off working with the complete, expanded document, because figures now need to be numbered sequentially through the volume, rather than in individual articles. DONE: 3. Check that we have only 39(?) figures in the whole document. Max 40. DONE. 4. For each image in the XML, identify it as colour or not by some appropriate mechanism. DONE: 5. For Agust's text, remove the first image, because it's going to be the cover; 3 and 5 are monochrome; and the rest are colour. Add "From the collection of Ísfilm. Used by permission." to each caption. Source should be tagged up so it can be rendered in smaller text. DONE: 6. Lindqvist's images are both colour. Add at the end of the article: [For images from the films Härlig är Jorden and Sånger från andra våningen see colour plates xx and yy]. NOTE: PRESUMED BY POSITION THAT THESE WILL BE COLOUR PLATES 6 AND 7. DONE: 7. For Lund and Smith, add the new captions, followed by "Used by permission." For Smith, just ignore the multi-image captions completely. For Lunde, add "Frame enlargement from the 35mm print of the film at the Norwegian Film Institute. Used by permission." to all of them. DONE: 8. For Smith, change any images which are going to be colour to ImageLinkColour. There should be five. NOT TO BE DONE: provide programmatically. 9. For monochrome images, add an identifying prefix ("Monochrome Plate 1", etc.) to the beginning of all of their captions. JT will decide what it should be. DONE: 10. Identify all references in the text to any image, and make sure they point to the correct identifying term. DONE: 11. Figure out a way to identify the orientation of each image, and encode that information. DONE: 12. Write an XSLT template to generate the List of Colour Plates. DONE: 13. Write XSLT to generate a List of Illustrations page to appear at the end of the TOC. The TOC template can call this template before exiting. 14. Create two new page layouts, one portrait and one landscape, with caption boxes appropriately positioned, based on the example documents from PS. 15. Write XSLT to generate each individual page; for BW this should include the full caption and source, and for colour it should just say "Colour Plate X".
