I'm doing descriptions of garments and have to write a title, full description, meta title and overview.
Each of these are minor variations of a general description.
Would I be able to use xml/xslt to repurpose this general description 'on the fly'? Is there an editor that is best at this sort of 're-writing'? Will it mess with SEO?
here is an example:
Womens shirred V-neck with 3/4 sleeves & eclectic jewels
This Stylish Top Has a shirred V-neck with 3/4 sleeves & eclectic jewel embelishments <BR>Made of 100% Cotton 2x1 Baby Rib
Shirred V-neck with 3/4 sleeves & eclectic jewel embelishments
Ladies shirred V-neck with 3/4 sleeves & eclectic jewel embelishments. 100% Cotton 2x1 Baby Rib
The overview might be used on the thumbnail page, the rest on the product page.
Thanks so much!
But if your phrases are constructed generically enough, you can use XML and XSLT to "fill in the blanks" in large documents.
you can put your phrase fragments into an XML file, then you can use XSLT like so:
<xsl:text>This thing is </xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="nodename" /><xsl:text> and isn't it good.</xsl:text>
I was thinking that with some carefull planning, I could work this out. But, I was thinking I would use something like:
for example I have:
Black Shelby Cobra Collage T-Shirt
T-Shirt featuring Shelby Cobra Collage, in Black
Shelby Cobra Black T-Shirt
as various entries that go into the page header, title, <h1> and URL.
An alternative would be to make a script to poke these in to the database fields, I could go back and dial them in as necessary.
