5.4.2 Example customization file

The following definitions demonstrate how to change the output. The <PrintObject> specification prints the object number, description, and indexing data all on the first line. The description is wrapped around HMTL anchor tags so that it is a link to the object originally gathered. The words ``indexing data'' are a link to the DisplayObject program which will format the content summary for HTML browsers. The object number is formatted as a number in parenthesis such that the whole thing takes up four spaces.

The <MatchedLineSub> definition includes four substitution expressions. The first removes the words ``Matched line:'' from the beginning of each matched line. The second removes SOIF attributes of the form ``partial-text{43}:'' from the beginning of a line. The third displays the attribute names (e.g. partial-text#) in italics. The last expression indents each line by five spaces to align it with the description line. The definition for <EndBrokerResults> slightly modifies the report of how many objects were matched.
