Templates

Templates (document types) are a way for Kentucky to store more information on IEs. Each IE is connected to a template. Common information is:

  • IE Type

  • • Original language (the language used for editing)

  • • Xml schema

  • • Which stylesheet to use when converting xml to html for preview

  • • Checkout extension (i.e. .xml, .doc etc.)

  • • Expected root element (xml only)

  • • Which stylesheets to be able to choose from when publishing (xml only)

  • • Extra validations (graphic only)

  • • Rules for extracting titles and ids (xml only)

Templates are also a way to further break down topic types. A map-task can have i.e. two templates; install, remove.
