$chunk-exclude — XPath expressions for excluding chunks.

Parameter:
{}chunk-exclude
Defined in:
param.xsl
Used in:
parameter-maps.xsl, modules/chunk.xsl

Synopsis

$chunk-exclude as xs:string*

Description

This parameter is only relevant when chunking is being performed, see Section 2.6, “Chunked” output. This parameter contains a list of XPath expressions. When chunking is being applied, for any element that could be a chunk (see $chunk-include), each expression is evaluated with that element as the context item. If the effective boolean value of any expression is true, the element will not become a chunk.

The default value for this parameter is:

('self::db:partintro',
 'self::*[ancestor::db:partintro]',
 'self::db:toc')

In other words partintro, all of the descendants of partintro, and toc are explicitly excluded from being chunks.

The namespaces in $chunk-filter-namespaces will be in-scope when this expression is evaluated.
