Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: stylesheets availability

/ "Dave Crosby" <DaveCrosby@worldnet.att.net> was heard to say:
| The biggest customizations I make are around chunking. It would be great to
| be able to easily turn chunking on or off for <sectX> and <sectionX>. I also

To chunk at sect1 or sect2 or sect3, etc? And equivalently at section,
section/section, section/section/section, etc.?

| tend to customize the look and feel things - the latest version of
| stylesheets help some, but I find I still have to get into the guts of it.

What sorts of look and feel changes are inaccessible from
customization layers?

| There are a couple things on my wish list:
| 1. If the stylesheet versions could sync with the DTD versions it would be
| easier to track updates.

That's just not possible. The stylesheets change much more quickly
than the DTDs and the stylesheets apply to a wide spectrum of DTDs
(DocBook 3.*, 4.*, 5.*, etc. as well as derivatives like simplified

| 2. I guess this is really a DTD issue, but I find myself wishing I could
| attach a "class" attribute to just about everything to allow finer control
| over the HTML output (using CSS stylesheets).

There's "role" as well as a wide range of other common attributes, but
what sort of control are you looking for?

                                        Be seeing you,

                              | knows.--Robert Frost
