$variablelist-termlength-threshold — Threshold value for considering varlistentry terms “long”

Defined in:
Used in:
parameter-maps.xsl, modules/attributes.xsl


$variablelist-termlength-threshold := 20


If the sum of the lengths of the term elements in a varlistentry exceeds this threshold, the variable list will have a “long” class. This can be used in CSS or in other downstream processing to decide whether or not the terms and their corresponding list items should be aligned side-by-side.

The length computation is just the number of characters. No attempt is made to adjust for wide or narrow characters.
