Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Cover Art

I've posted a similar feature request for fo at source forge, along with
an ugly hack that gets a "cover" in (but throws page numbering off):

Looking at the titlepage templates in XSL 1.42, it
appears there is no template for mediaobject or graphic.
So you aren't doing anything wrong, it just doesn't
work yet.

I recommend you file that omission as a bug in sourceforge.
Of course, it isn't immediately clear to me where such
a graphic would appear, relative to title, author, etc.
Different people may want it in different places.
Perhaps it was not included because that is a designer
issue that requires customization.  It could be
handled with a parameter that specifies which element
it should appear before, something like:

<xsl:param name="place.bookinfo.graphic.before"

or some such.
