Re: language error in PDF transform

Hi Scott,

Might it be possible that in one of your DITA topics the xml:lang attribute is set to an empty value?

Hi DITA users:

I'm getting the following error:

/rsuite-data/DITA-OT/xsl/common/functions.xsl:94: Fatal Error! An empty sequence is not allowed as the result of function dita-ot:get-iso-language-code()
This is the function that's failing:
    <xsl:function name="dita-ot:get-iso-language-code" as="xs:string">
        <xsl:param name="lang" as="xs:string"/>
        <xsl:sequence select="tokenize($lang, '-')[1]"/>

I suspect the "lang" param contains an empty string. 

Does anyone know what would cause the "lang" param to be empty?

Thank you,
