BREX mapping

One of the features of S1000D Business Rules Exchange is the ability to define a specific meaning for the values of special attributes. The specification calls this “attribute tailoring.” Some tailored attributes are used to define formatting features such as text emphasis and list item prefixes. The BREX file does not provide any way to define and store any property values for these formatting features.

Use the BREX mapping feature to define and store format settings for:

  • Caption colors

  • Text emphasis formatting

  • List item prefix characters

  • Verbatim text formatting

When Resolve tailored attributes option is enabled on the Manage Projects tab, the formatting changes are applied when each data module is opened.
