Box 2

The lack of defined customization hooks in other conversion pipelines has yielded one or multiple of three unfortunate outcomes:

  • bloated converters that were tuned to handle the most absurd fringe cases in the input;
  • content that was shoehorned into unfit structures;
  • too many exceptions from standard processing that needed to be handled manually.

A cascaded configuration, including XSLT templates and XProc pipelines, can help avoiding all of these.
