Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] static table of contents

Using CSS:
div.toc {
float: left;
width: 20%;
position: fixed;

div.book div.chapter {
margin-left: 20%;

I believe that should work for any browser EXCEPT MS IE, because IE 
doesn't support position: fixed (even though it's been part of CSS for 7 
years).  Fixed sections in IE require some complicated div-sizing that 
is easy to break. :-(

Which then leaves frames as your other option.  Bob's book has a good 
description of how to use frames with chunk.xsl.  To do it with one 
chunk, I think you'd have to do two passes, one suppressing the TOC and 
one suppressing everything else, to create the index file on the left 
and the content page on the right.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an 
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it 
to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the 
possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of 
it."  -- Thomas Jefferson
