Using Passthrough Conditions in Word
A passthrough condition is a condition you apply to content that you do not want ePublisher to process when you generate output. For example, if you have embedded multimedia files in your source documents, such as Audio Video Interleave files (.avi) or Adobe Software Flash files (.swf), you can apply a passthrough condition to the code so that ePublisher does not process the code.
The following example shows .avi code to which you can apply a passthrough condition.
<embed src="sample.avi" width="400"
height="300" pluginspage=";>
</embed>
The following example shows .swf code to which you can apply a passthrough condition.
<embed src="sample.swf" width="400"
height="300" pluginspage="

</embed>
If you have code in your Microsoft Word source documents that you do not want ePublisher to process, create a passthrough condition and then apply the passthrough condition to the code. For more information, see “Creating Conditions in Word” and “Applying Conditions in Word”.
You can also use Passthrough markers and the Passthrough paragraph styles and character styles options to insert content directly into your output without being transformed and coded for your output.
