Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Generated text survey
At the moment, the DocBook stylesheets have somewhat limited support for generated text. Basically, all you can do easily is put a word or phrase in front of a title or cross reference. I've broken a whole bunch of stuff with respect to gentext, so I thought I should try to fix this problem while I'm putting things back together. Will anyone familiar with a language that requires more sophisticated gentext, please describe what the rules are? I'm not looking for a specific stylesheet solution, just a description of the problem to be solved. For example, the "correct" way to generate a title page for <chapter label="3"><title>Some Title</title> is [gentext prefix chapter] 3 [gentext punctuation] Some Title I gather, though I could be mistaken, that in some languages it's [gentext prefix chapter] 3 [gentext suffix chapter] [punct] Some Title And there are other languages that put those bits in a different order. Similarly, there are rules for cross referneces to chapter 3. Any and all help most appreciated.
