Field Codes
Microsoft Word uses field codes to implement standard features, such as index entries and variables. You can use sequence field codes for numbering, such as numbering chapters, steps, figure captions, and table captions. ePublisher recognizes many of the standard field codes and uses them to implement these standard features in your generated output.
ePublisher projects also use custom field codes (markers) and styles to define online features. The toolbar provided by ePublisher in Microsoft Word allows you to quickly insert the custom markers. You need to give the list of markers and styles to the writers so they know how to implement each online feature. The writers use the markers and styles you create to define online features.
The Stationery defines the custom markers and styles. Markers with reserved names have their functions defined by default. You can use these default names, or you can create your own markers. To reduce complexity, use the default marker names, which are also used throughout the documentation. You can also use the style names defined in the documentation to reduce complexity. The following table lists the default custom marker types used to implement online features.
