Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] XSL Titlepage are Pagetitles?

Here is what I wrote on this subject in my book:

"A "title page" may not be a separate page. The stylesheets use the term
"titlepage" to mean the presentation of an element's title and info element
content, such as author and copyright. The "titlepage" mechanism in the
stylesheets is designed to be very general, so that it handles many
different output styles. Page breaking after the title and info is just one
possible feature. Sometimes it generates separate title pages, as in the FO
output for a book, and sometimes it just prints the title and info elements
without a page break, as in HTML output."

See this reference for more details:


Of course, the word "page" itself has taken on many new meanings since the
days when it meant one side of a piece of paper.  8^)
