Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] First Page

I had a similar problem to write my own document. I used DocBook and had to 
work hard to make it work the way I want.

I built a dsssl file with some commands, but for this specific case (title 
pages), a possible solution is:

1. In dsssl file, put a command so DocBook will not generate title pages:
	(define %generate-book-titlepage% #f)
2. Create PDF file with docbook2pdf
3. Create the title pages with OpenOffice and export them as a PDF file
4. Use GhostScript to join the PDF files into a unique document
        gs -dBATCH  -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite 
-sOutputFile=<final_pdf_file> <title_page_pdf> <document_generaded_by_DocBook>

I used this solution to generate my document. If someone can do it using 
DocBook and dsssl stylesheets, I wold like to know, because it would be a 
much better solution than the one I presented. If I can build a dsssl to 
customize title pages then I can make other students use DocBook instead of 
other tools.
