 Element reference

PSML elements from <author> to <xref>

<fragments>

Summary

The <fragments> element is a container for fragments on non-PSML documents.

This element can only be used when document level="metadata".

You can create any fragment on non-PSML document using the service API. But the PageSeeder user interface only supports the creation and display of specific fragments on PDF and image files.

When creating fragments on non-PSML documents, we recommend that you follow the Media Fragments URI 1.0 (basic) W3 recommendation.

Examples

Example 1

The following example lists fragments at specific coordinates on a document like an image.

<fragments>
  <fragment id="xywh=800,200,500,100" type="xref">
    <para>
      <xref id="1234" frag="default" 
            reversefrag="xywh=800,200,500,100" 
            reversetitle="Image region"
            reverselink="true"
            reversetype="none"
            display="document"
            config="default"
            type="none"
            uriid="777" 
            href="/ps/sample/help/example.psml"
            urititle="Example"
            mediatype="application/vnd.pageseeder.psml+xml">Example</xref>
    </para>
  </fragment>
</fragments>

The fragment ID follows the spatial dimension syntax xywh to select a rectangle at position (800, 200) with width and height of 500x100 as recommended in the Media Fragments URI 1.0 – 4.2.2. Spatial Dimension .

Example 2

The following example lists fragments on a document like a PDF which fragments would include a page number and coordinates.

<fragments>
  <fragment id="page=2&amp;xywh=294,379,259,95" type="link">
    <para>
      <link href="https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986" 
            uriid="44">Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax</link>
    </para>
  </fragment>
</fragments>

The fragment ID is page=2&xywh=294,379,259,95 but the ampersand needs to be escaped in XML.
