Creating a Passthrough Marker in FrameMaker
A passthrough marker is a marker that allows you to insert 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 insert a passthrough marker with a value that is set to the HTML code that you do not want ePublisher to process.
The following example shows .avi code to which you could insert using a passthrough marker.
<embed src="sample.avi" width="400"
height="300" pluginspage="">
To create a passthrough marker in an Adobe FrameMaker source document
1. In Adobe FrameMaker, on the Special menu, click Marker.
2. In the Marker Type field, select Passthrough from the drop-down list.
3. If the Passthrough marker type is not on the list, check with the Stationery designer to obtain the name of the marker type the Stationery designer created to support this functionality and then use the marker type specified by the Stationery designer. For more information, refer to “Implementing Online Features in FrameMaker”.
4. In the Marker Text field, type the html code that you would like to not be processed by ePublisher such as the Flash embed code indicated in the previous topic.
5. Click New Marker.
6. Save your source document.
7. Generate output for your project. For more information, see “Generating Output”.
8. In Output Explorer, verify ePublisher created the appropriate result for your embedded html code. For more information, see “Viewing Output in Output Explorer”.
