Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: double sided layout


I set the margins myself:
<xsl:param name="page.margin.outer">4cm</xsl:param>
<xsl:param name="page.margin.inner">2cm</xsl:param>
If I disable this, I see the same <fo:simple-page-master .../> element
with the two different margins you mentioned. But there is still no
changing of left/right pages in the output ...

Has anybody an example xml/xsl where this feature works?
