HTML Template Tab

HTML Template Tab of DocToHtml Converter Options Dialog

This Tab lets you insert any custom HTML code into the resulting document.

Output only HTML inside BODY section—if this option is turned on, DocToHtml will write only normal content enclosed in the <BODY> tags to the output file. Use this option when you need only HTML content, without the HEAD section, for further integration into your CMS or website. You can insert any HTML code before that content (after the <BODY> start tag) or after it (before the </BODY> closing tag). Note that these two text fields will not be disabled if you turn this option on.

Template Location—this drop-down list lets you select the location for inserting your edited template.

Active—this option determines whether the currently selected template will be used.

Expressions—this option controls the evaluation of expression and conditional parsing of the template text.

Report all errors—this option toggles the extended error reporting mode. Use it when you want to make sure that your template is parsed correctly, with all expressions and conditional statements. This setting also affects the parsing and substitution of variables in filenames.

In the text fragments to be inserted, you can use any HTML code and any Unicode characters. However, please note that DocToHtml will not verify the validity of that HTML code, and that certain characters illegal in HTML (<, >, &, and ") will not be converted into their numeric or symbolic entities, so it is up to you to provide a valid markup. Unicode characters that cannot be represented in the current output encoding will be converted into their numeric Unicode entities, as defined in the HTML 4.01 Specification.


When this option is enabled, you can use variables, which will be substituted with their actual values when the template is parsed. The variable declaration syntax is %VAR_NAME% (that is, a variable name from the first column of the table below, enclosed in percent signs). To use the percent sign as a literal within the template text, just double it. Supported variable names are given in the table below. N designates the current part number for multi-part output. The minus sign means that the constant is not defined for this part.

OUTLINE--List number of the first paragraph of a given part. For example, 1.1, 1.2.3, and so on. For the first part, this variable is always an empty string.

Conditional statements

Conditional statement is of the form:
(%IFDEF(<var-name>)%|%IFNDEF(<var-name>)%) <text> {%ELSEIF(<var-name>)% <text>} [%ELSE% <text>] %ENDIF%
Here <var-name> is the name of an actual variable, and <text> is some template text. IFDEF is an abbreviation for “if defined”; IFNDEF, for “if not defined”. The square brackets mean that the element can occur zero or one times. The curly brackets mean that the element can occur zero or more times. The round brackets are used for grouping. The vertical line means using one of the available options. Conditional statements can be nested.
