RE: Starting a page sequence at the section level

Bob,

Thank you very much for this answer.

I looked at the PSMI technique which is very interesting; however it
has the limitation that the psmi:page-sequence element must be a direct
children of fo:flow.

In our case we have to deal with more deeply nested sections.

So PSMI inspired me to try a more generic approach as follows:

. the first pass can output fo:page-sequence for any section
  (according to specific rules); this is obtained by customizing
  the template match="/section" in sections.xsl (the match
  attribute is modified to trigger the template for sections
  that need their own page-sequence)

. the resulting fo is of course *not* valid

. a second pass brings any fo:page-sequence to the upper level
  (direct child of root) by "cutting and reconstructing" the
  elements where any fo:page-sequence is found

The second pass does the following: given this source and the
instruction to cut at 'z' elements:

<a>
   <b>
      <c/>

cmdsynopsys + command + arg customization

Hello,

I'm have a command line example with long parameters list which is
broke in the pdf format. I added the <sbr/> to break the line in more
logical place.
Now i'm trying to make a rest of the line to be indented i.e instead
this output:

MyCommand.exe /param1 /param2 /param3
/param4

I want this one:
MyCommand.exe /param1 /param2 /param3
       /param4

Preferably i want to param4 to be started aligned with the /param1,
but i will live with just some kind of indentation.
I was able to indent the single arg using this approach:

<xsl:template match="arg[ <at> role='ident4']">
    <fo:block text-indent="0.5in">
        <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </fo:block>
</xsl:template>

But what should i do with the following ? :

MyCommand.exe /param1 /param2 /param3
       /param4 /param5 /param6

v5 catalog sequencing.

I'm struggling a little to integrate a website catalog into the v5 sequence.

I'm guessing my own should link through, in sequence, to
   nextCatalog - main docbook v5 catalog
   nextCatalog - docbook v5 docbook-xsl catalog
   nextCatalog - website v5 catalog

Is that about right?

regards

Re: Official vsn 5.0 stylesheets. URL wanted please

Hi Dave,
I'm not sure what you mean by official.  The docbook-xsl-ns version 1.73.2 
in the SourceForge distribution is as official as they come.  They are no 
longer experimental, if that is what you mean.

RE: Starting a page sequence at the section level

... well, it turns out that if one simply does not copy the id
every time an element is copied (but the first time), it works
just fine, with no internal references errors.

So far it seems to work exactly fine... thanks again! ;-)

Regards,
EB

Author Middle Initials

Hey,

The example given in http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/author.html
for middle initials is:

<author>
  <firstname>Norman</firstname>
  <surname>Walsh</surname>
  <othername role='mi'>D</othername>
</author>

In the XSL-FO output target for the stylesheets, this will be
formatted as "Norman D Walsh" when the author.othername.in.middle
parameter is non-zero (via person.name and when it calls
person.name.first-last based on your localization). I'd like a period
after the D.

Does the semantics of the othername/ <at> role="mi" suggest that the period
be added after the D in the othername ("D.") or that that period
should be in the stylesheets?

Thanks,
Keith

XInclude without xml:base

I am looking to include a file in my docbook document, but I don't want 
to generate xml:base. Is there a way to do this ??
I know "keep.relative.image.uris" can be used. But I am not using 
images. I need to include a text/xml file.
