Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] How to access the title of a document

There isn't a single template that gets a document's title, but there is a
mode that returns the title of any element.  You just need to select the
document's root element. Something like this should work:

<xsl:apply-templates mode="title.markup" select="/*[1]"/>

That mode knows how to find the title as either a child of the element or of
its *info element.
