Certainly, you can use href attribute for the major elements like <options>,
<fonts> and even <font-group>:




<config xmlns="http://www.renderx.com/XEP/config">

<options href="xep.options.xml"/>

<fonts href="xep.fonts.xml"/>

<languages href="xep.languages.xml"/>



And then even this:


<fonts default-family="Helvetica" xmlns="http://www.renderx.com/XEP/config">

<font-group href="xep.fonts.base14.xml"/>

<font-group href="xep.fonts.type1.xml"/>

<font-group href="xep.fonts.windows.xml"/>

<font-group href="F:\GoogleFonts.xml"/>

<!-- Required aliases -->

<font-alias value="Courier" name="monospace"/>

<font-alias value="Helvetica" name="sans-serif"/>

<font-alias value="Times" name="serif"/>

<font-alias value="Times" name="cursive"/>

<font-alias value="Times" name="fantasy"/>

Subject: [xep-support] Is it possible to split the XEP config file?


Hi all,


I'm using Desktop XEP in conjunction with the DITA Toolkit, and a custom PDF
transform that defines particular fonts.


I would like to include the XEP config file within the custom PDF transform
to define the font file paths.


However, the XEP config file includes a lot of 'standard' items that need to
point to file paths in the standard RenderX XEP installation.


I was wondering if there is a way to split the XEP config file, possibly
using a XML catalog file?


There could be two issues: whether the DITA OT accepts this, and also
whether XEP accepts this.


I've raised a DITA OT Github issue: ANT variables in PDF renderer config
files <https://github.com/dita-ot/dita-ot/issues/2295> . Issue #2295 .


Many thanks,
