Subject: RE: DOCBOOK-APPS: Newbie trouble with output of 'section'-separat edHTML-files

First, instead of calling the html/docbook.xsl stylesheet, call
html/chunk.xsl.  There are a few additional parameters which control how
things "chunk" (i.e. break out into HTML files).

chunk.first.sections (does the first section stay with the parent, or make
it's own file? 1=own chunk, 0=with chapter)
chunk.section.depth (how many levels deep do sections continue to chunk.
use.id.as.filename (the ID of each section becomes the filename of the

Be sure to use an XSLT processor that supports chunking (e.g. Saxon or

Running Saxon, your command line might look like this:

java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet source_document.xml docbook-xsl\html\chunk.xsl
chunk.first.sections="1" chunk.section.depth="5" use.id.as.filename="1"

Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Newbie trouble with output of 'section'-separated


I hope this question isn't to silly, but I haven't come across the answer
reading the documentations so far. :-(

O.k., I've written an xml-file using 'DocBook'-syntax with the following
(simplyfied) structure:


When I transform the file using the 'DocBook xsl-stylesheets for HTML' I get
a long/large document. So far so good.

Now I would rather like to transform the file into separate HTML-files, each
file representing a section (sec1 - sectn).

Do I have to write my own xsl-stylesheet or is there allready a possibility
to set an attribute or something in my xml-file within the 'sect1'-elements
or so, which will lead to the desired success when using 'DocBook xsl
1.50.0' to transform it?

As I'm quite new to the whole thing (xml/xslt and DocBook) any hints are
highly apreceated.

Thanks in advance
