Public Instance Methods

comment(text = '') { || ... } click to toggle source

Emits an XML/HTML comment (&lt;!– … –&gt;) surrounding text and/or the output of block. see www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/sgmltut.html#h-3.2.4

If text is an Internet Explorer conditional comment condition such as “[if IE]”, the output includes the opening condition and closing “[endif]”. See www.quirksmode.org/css/condcom.html

Since “Authors should avoid putting two or more adjacent hyphens inside comments,” we emit a warning if you do that.

# File lib/erector/xml_widget.rb, line 92
def comment(text = '')
  puts "Warning: Authors should avoid putting two or more adjacent hyphens inside comments." if text =~ %r--/

  conditional = text =~ %r\[if .*\]/

  rawtext "<!--"
  rawtext text
  rawtext ">" if conditional

  if block_given?
    rawtext "\n"
    yield
    rawtext "\n"
  end

  rawtext "<![endif]" if conditional
  rawtext "-->\n"
end
instruct(attributes={:version => "1.0", :encoding => "UTF-8"}) click to toggle source

Emits an XML instruction, which looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

# File lib/erector/xml_widget.rb, line 78
def instruct(attributes={:version => "1.0", :encoding => "UTF-8"})
  output << raw("<?xml#{format_sorted(sort_for_xml_declaration(attributes))}?>")
end
newliney?(tag_name) click to toggle source
# File lib/erector/xml_widget.rb, line 68
def newliney?(tag_name)
  tag = self.class.tag_named tag_name
  if tag
    tag.newliney?
  else
    true
  end
end

  # correct order is "version, encoding, standalone" (XML 1.0 section 2.8).
  # But we only try to put version before encoding for now.
