ODS Markup, Tagsets and Styles! Taming ODS Styles and Tagsets

ODS Markup, Tagsets and Styles! Taming ODS Styles and Tagsets

SAS Global Forum, 2007


Find out how ODS styles can be used in new ways when they are combined with tagsets. Watch as a simple example grows into new ideas on how to use styles and tagsets. See how easy it is to create a new destination and style that do just what you need. Explore how these concepts have been applied to existing ODS Markup destinations, such as ExcelXP and HTML. Learn a few simple tools and tricks that will make styles easier to work with for any ODS destination. 

Tagsets are a very transparent reflection of the ODS infrastructure that lays beneath it. One friend once referred to Tagsets as "the glass bottom boat on the sea of ODS". Using tagsets to understand ODS and ODS styles might be like using a see-through toaster to make toast. What better way to learn both tagsets and ODS styles than to use tagsets to see how styles work?

Is all about revealing just how ODS styles work by revealing them with tagsets. In the end, you'll have a better understanding of ODS styles and tagsets which will make everything you do with ODS that much easier.

In the process, I also explain tagsets in a way that is much more accessible than the usual code-oriented geeky methods. It's all about images, associations, and routine. Your morning routine will take on a whole new meaning with this presentation. I only wish you could see it in its full glory as a keynote presentation instead of just a series of pdfs.
