Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Change "TableofContents" gentext for Chapter level tocs?

This can be done with a combination of customizations.  But it differs
from FO and HTML outputs.

For FO output, the Table of Contents title is generated from
the titlepage mechanism, from the specs in fo/titlepage.templates.xml.
It currently just calls the gentext template with a fixed key
"TableofContents".  So I changed the first part of it to:

  <t:titlepage t:element="table.of.contents" t:wrapper="fo:block">
    <t:titlepage-content t:side="recto">

This customized spec file needs to be built into a new
titlepage.templates.xsl that your customization layer includes.

Now it will call a new template named "toc.title" with the
current element as the "node" parameter.  The toc.title
template looks like this:

<xsl:template name="toc.title">
  <xsl:param name="node" select="."/>

    <xsl:when test="local-name(.) = 'chapter'">
      <xsl:call-template name="gentext">
        <xsl:with-param name="key" select="'ChapterTableofContents'"/>
      <xsl:call-template name="gentext">
        <xsl:with-param name="key" select="'TableofContents'"/>


If the current element is a chapter, then the key is
"ChapterTableof Contents".  Then I defined that gentext
key in the customization file using this:

<xsl:param name="local.l10n.xml" select="document('')"/>
<l:i18n xmlns:l="http://docbook.sourceforge.net/xmlns/l10n/1.0";>
  <l:l10n language="en">
   <l:gentext key="ChapterTableofContents" text="In this chapter you will

You can define other strings for other languages too.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Change "TableofContents" gentext for Chapter level

> Hello
> I'm trying to setup a customisation layer that will give me a Book level
TOC and a set of Chapter level TOCs. I would like, however, for the TOC
title text to read "In this Chapter you will cover:" when at a chapter level
and to retain the more traditional "Table of Contents" at the Book level.
> Long term, I'd probably need to support other languages too but I can
worry about that later.
> I've got the <xsl:param name="generate.toc"> stuff sorted and working but
as far as I can see <l:gentext key="TableofContents" text="Table of
Contents"/> is a single entry for all TOCs.
> Is it possible to do what I want at a customisation layer level or would I
need to edit the templates themselves. If so, is there any merit in
submitting a change request?
> I'd also like the Chapter level TOC to be just a list (bulleted?) rather
than a full-on TOC.
> Perhaps I should set:
> <xsl:param name="generate.toc">
> book      title,toc,figure
> chapter   title
> section   title
> </xsl:param>
> And manually maintain my Chapter TOC within my <chapter> XML source?
