The <ft:node> element is used within the <ft:toc> element to declare a node object (generally a topic) in the FTML map.

The <ft:node> element is mandatory within the <ft:toc> element.

The <ft:node> element can have the following attributes:

  • @href: the location of the node object.
  • @type: the type of the node object.
  • @ft:title: the title of the node in the table of contents.
  • @ft:originId: the unique identifier of the node object.

It is possible to apply metadata to specific topics by using the <ft:metas> element in the corresponding <ft:node> element.

The following lines show an example of the <ft:node> element:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>   
<ft:map ...>  
  ...  
  <ft:toc>  
    <ft:node ft:originId="192fe" ft:title="Introduction" href="intro/introduction.html"  
       type="topic">  
      <ft:metas>  
        <ft:meta key="product">myProduct</ft:meta>   
        <ft:meta key="audience">beginner</ft:meta>  
      </ft:metas>   
      <ft:node href="front.html"/>  
    </ft:node>  
    <ft:node ft:title="Copyrights" href="copyrights.html"/>  
    ...  
  </ft:toc>
