Hi Norm,
This looks very useful.  One thing I'm not clear about,
though. Is customizing the template named "chunk" in
chunk-common.xsl part of the process?  That's the template
that tests whether an element is a chunk.  That's a pretty
big template to customize, but it must be necessary since
something won't chunk if it doesn't pass that test.

And doesn't the "process-chunk" template need to be modified to
change the 'ischunk' test?  It is currently passing the
context node to the chunk template rather than the
value of $content, which is what should be tested, no?

And chunkfn also selects '.' to form the filename.
Shouldn't it also select $content?  

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what $content is supposed to
