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


I forgot to include the HTML customization.   A chapter TOC in HTML does not
currently use the titlepage.templates.xsl stuff, but I'm not sure why.  It
probably
should.

In the current setup, you would need to customize the template named
"make.toc" in html/autotoc.xsl. Locate the place where it is calling the
gentext template, and use the choose statement from the toc.title
template I included before.
