Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: page chunking

/ Bob Stayton <bobs@caldera.com> was heard to say:
| But there is still no direct solution for arbitrary
| chunking on <beginpage/> elements.  I think it would
| be hard to do even as a customization, given the complexity
| of the chunking templates.

I misread it too. Chunking the HTML into pages at <beginpage>
boundaries in the source would be *really* hard.

I suggest the following strategy instead:

1. Add a template that outputs <span class="pagebreak"/> where each
   beginpage occurs.

2. Create a single HTML file for the entire document.

3. Write a script in your programming language of choice (Perl, Python, etc.)
   that chunks on the <span class="pagebreak"/> boundaries.

                                        Be seeing you,
