5.1. Generated Divisions
Most modern document production systems have the ability to automatically generate
whole sections such as a table of contents or an index. The TEI OUCS scheme provides an
element to mark the location at which such a generated section should be placed.
- indicates the location at which a textual division generated automatically by a
text-processing application is to appear. Attributes include:
- specifies what type of generated text division (e.g. index, table of
contents, etc.) is to appear. Sample values include:
index is to be generated and inserted at this point),
table of contents),
figlist (a list of figures) and
tablist (a list of tables).
element can be placed anywhere that a division element would be
legal, as in the following example:
<titlePage> ... </titlePage>
<head>Preface</head> ... </div>
<body> ... </body>
<head>Appendix</head> ... </div>
<divGen type="index" n="Index"/>
When an index or table of contents is to be encoded (rather than one being generated)
for some reason, the <list> element discussed in section 4.6. Lists
should be used.
