Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: Help project structure

/ Jirka Kosek <jirka@kosek.cz> was heard to say:

| Norm, what about adding support for sth. like <?db line-break?> ?

I have an historical fondness for <?lb?>. Sure.

That's what I'm hacking together now.

| You probably have all chapters in book. You can set title for this book

You should probably <apply-templates select="/*" mode="title.markup"/>

I had assumed that would be possible. I agree, if you can't generate
an XML document that maps the symbolic names to the current numbers,
you're not easily going to do this in XSLT.

(Why do the numbers change? Why isn't HKEY_SOME_ID=4 always and forever 4.
No, nevermind, I probably don't really want to know :-)

Sigh. Uhm. I'll try to put something together.
