The Export Template view for XHTML

Each DataWindow object that you create has a default XHTML
export template associated with it. You can see the default template
in the DataWindow painter’s Export Template view for XHTML.

The Export Template view for XHTML coexists with the Export
Template view for XML, each on its own tab page with XML on the
top by default. To display the view for XHTML, click the XHTML tab.
If you have any problems displaying the view, select View>Export/Import
Template>XHTML from the menu bar or select View>Layouts>Default
and then click the XHTML tab.

The XHTML export template is a single-instance document of
the <form> element. It stores only the structural
layout and any changes that you make to the elements, attributes,
and style declarations. When XHTML or XSLT is generated, these changes
are incorporated into the <form> element and the CSS
stylesheet used to render the DataWindow in the browser. More than
one export template can be created for a DataWindow.

Default style rules and most default attributes are not stored
in the template. Any changes to style declarations are stored in
the template, but at runtime they are removed and applied to the
separately generated CSS stylesheet.

In the Export Template view for XHTML, you can reference DataWindow column,
computed field, and text controls, and DataWindow expressions for each
row in the XHTML, wherever character data is allowed. At runtime,
these are replaced with text.
