<para>This is technical reference documentation for the
miscellaneous utility templates in the DocBook XSL
<para>These templates are defined in a separate file from the set
of “common” templates because some of the common templates
reference DocBook XSL stylesheet parameters, requiring the
entire set of parameters to be imported/included in any
stylesheet that imports/includes the common templates.</para>
<para>The utility templates don’t import or include any DocBook
XSL stylesheet parameters, so the utility templates can be used
without importing the whole set of parameters.</para>

<para>The <function>log.message</function> template is a utility
template for logging/emitting formatted messages&#xa0;– that is,
notes and warnings, along with a given log “level” and an
identifier for the “source” that the message relates to.</para>

<para>Text to log/emit in the message-level field to
indicate the message level

<para>Text to log/emit in the source field to identify the
“source” to which the notification/warning relates.
This can be any arbitrary string, but because the
message lacks line and column numbers to identify the
exact part of the source document to which it
relates, the intention is that the value you pass
into the <literal>source</literal> parameter should
give the user some way to identify the portion of
their source document on which to take potentially
take action in response to the log message (for
example, to edit, change, or add content).</para>
<para>So the <literal>source</literal> value should be,
for example, an ID, book/chapter/article title, title
of some formal object, or even a string giving an
XPath expression.</para>
<para>Text to log/emit in the context-description field to
describe the context for the message.</para>
