Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] chunking html and skipping the bookinfo

I think I found an alternative to this. But I'm not too excited about my
solution. This is what I've been requested to do (chunked html) in the order
of the book:

1) Book title, big photo and one paragraph (legal notices following at the
bottom or sent to the end of the book)
2) Overview - which is now a preface
3) the book's content - chapters/sects (each having their own toc)
4) software licenese - appendixes
5) legal notices (from the first page)
6) completely expanded toc.

I couldn't figure out how to make an image to show up on the first page, so
I made a static page that links to the preface. and the legal notices from
the first page is linked from the bottom of each page as a copyright notice.

I really want to follow docbook as closely as possile, and put the image on
the bookinfo page.

And I still can't figure out how to make a separate page for the toc. And
still have local toc's for each chapter. Is there a way to do that?

Can you be a little more specific?  When you say the "book info part", do
you mean the index.html page that has the book title, bookinfo, and table of
contents?  Is that what you want to appear at the end?

Would rearranging the Next and Previous markers in the header and footer
suffice?  That is, the preface page would have no Previous, the last page of
content would have a Next that points to index.html, and the index.html page
would have no Next.
