    <title>Introduction</title>
    
<para>This is technical reference documentation for the
      miscellaneous utility templates in the DocBook XSL
      Stylesheets.</para>

    <note>
      
<para>These templates are defined in a separate file from the set
        of “common” templates because some of the common templates
        reference DocBook XSL stylesheet parameters, requiring the
        entire set of parameters to be imported/included in any
        stylesheet that imports/includes the common templates.</para>

      
<para>The utility templates don’t import or include any DocBook
        XSL stylesheet parameters, so the utility templates can be used
        without importing the whole set of parameters.</para>

    </note>
    
<para>This is not intended to be user documentation. It is
      provided for developers writing customization layers for the
      stylesheets.</para>

<para>The <function>log.message</function> template is a utility
    template for logging/emitting formatted messages – that is,
    notes and warnings, along with a given log “level” and an
    identifier for the “source” that the message relates to.</para>

  </refsect1><refsect1><title>Parameters</title>
    
<variablelist>
      <varlistentry><term>level</term>
        <listitem>
          
<para>Text to log/emit in the message-level field to
            indicate the message level
          (<literal>Note</literal> or
          <literal>Warning</literal>)</para>

        </listitem>
      </varlistentry>
      <varlistentry><term>source</term>
        <listitem>
          
<para>Text to log/emit in the source field to identify the
            “source” to which the notification/warning relates.
            This can be any arbitrary string, but because the
            message lacks line and column numbers to identify the
            exact part of the source document to which it
            relates, the intention is that the value you pass
            into the <literal>source</literal> parameter should
            give the user some way to identify the portion of
            their source document on which to take potentially
            take action in response to the log message (for
            example, to edit, change, or add content).</para>

          
<para>So the <literal>source</literal> value should be,
            for example, an ID, book/chapter/article title, title
            of some formal object, or even a string giving an
            XPath expression.</para>

      <varlistentry><term>context-desc-field-length</term>
        <listitem>
          
<para>Specifies length of the context-description field
            (in characters); default is 12</para>

          
<para>If the text specified by the
            <literal>context-desc</literal> parameter is longer
            than the number of characters specified in
            <literal>context-desc-field-length</literal>, it is
            truncated to <literal>context-desc-field-length</literal>
            (12 characters by default).</para>

          
<para>If the specified text is shorter than
            <literal>context-desc-field-length</literal>,
          it is right-padded out to
          <literal>context-desc-field-length</literal> (12 by
          default).</para>

        
<para>If no value has been specified for the
          <literal>context-desc</literal> parameter, the field is
          left empty and the text of the log message begins with
          the value of the <literal>message</literal>
          parameter.</para>
