The parameters that only apply to chunking would > be confusing in param.xsl, I think. I am with Dave on putting all the parameters into param.xsl. In the DSSSL stylesheets, all the parameters - including those for chunking - are found in 'dbparam.dsl'. It was simple and easy to find all the things that you could change. When I first started working with XSLT, I could not find the chunking parameters after spending a good amount of time looking for them. I wrongly assumed that this functionality had just not yet been added to the XSLT stylesheets. It was only later that I discovered them in 'chunk-common.xsl'. In the meantime, I had gone back to using the SGML toolchain because I thought I could better control chunking. So especially for those of us migrating from DSSSL to XSLT, I think having all the params in one place would be extremely useful. As far as not making it too confusing, I suppose all the chunking params could be at the end of the file with some large comments above them. Right now it is a pain-in-the-neck to have to check two places to see if a parameter can be set.
