1.4. Creating New Paragraph Styles
SDF's event processing feature makes it easy to create a new paragraph style from an existing one. For example, the following line makes FEATURE an alias of the P2 style:
!on paragraph 'FEATURE';; $style='P2'
SDF uses the parastyles filter to define the mapping between an SDF paragraph style and a target paragraph style. For example:
!block parastyles Name To Attributes # normal paragraphs N b0_Body # headings H1 h1_Heading H2 h2_Heading H3 h3_Heading !endblock
SDF makes it easy to define new target paragraph styles by inheriting configuration details from an existing style.
See the look/simple/mif.sdn file in the SDF distribution for examples.
