Any restrictions on using html anchors in toc.xml? [message #605414] Thu, 13 December 2007 18:00

We use both html files and html anchors in the Eclipse toc.xml file. For
example, the "Using a busy cursor" page has an entry in the toc that
references cursormgr_5.html, and two entries in the TOC that reference
anchors in cursormgr_5.html:

<topic label="Using a busy cursor" href="html/cursormgr_5.html"/>
<topic label="Setting a busy cursor"
href="html/cursormgr_5.html#157743" />
<topic label="Using the showBusyCursor property"
href="html/cursormgr_5.html#149626" />

This works fine, except when you hit "Print selected topics and all
subtopics" and it prints the cursormgr_5.html page three times.

I have never found anything to say that anchors are prohibited in the toc,
and we have been using them for several versions of Eclipse. But, with the
addition of the "Print selected topics and all subtopics" feature, we are
now rethinking it.

Are there any restrictions that people are aware of when using anchors in
the toc?
