Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] section titles inline

This is similar to a formalpara but with a big difference.  A formalpara has
a strict structure that permits only a single para after the title.  A sect3
permits anything after the title.  So the complication is when you say
"usually a para".  If it is not a para, then it should probably not be a

Here is a customization that accomplishes this.  The select statements are
complicated because it only applies when the first element after the sect3
title is a para.

<xsl:template name="sect3.titlepage">
  <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="normal.para.spacing">
    <!-- select and process the title in a new mode here -->
    <xsl:apply-templates select="title" mode="inline.title"/>
    <xsl:text>: </xsl:text>
    <!-- select and process the following para in a new mode here -->
    <xsl:apply-templates select="para[preceding-sibling::*[1][self::title]]"

<!-- Define whatever inline formatting properties you want here -->
<xsl:attribute-set name="inline.sect3.title.properties">
  <xsl:attribute name="font-weight">bold</xsl:attribute>

<!-- Process the following para by processing all of its children, which
prevents it
       from forming its own fo:block as a normal para does -->
<xsl:template match="sect3/para[preceding-sibling::*[1][self::title]]"

<xsl:template match="sect3/para[preceding-sibling::*[1][self::title]]">
  <!-- Turn off normal processing of this para so it doesn't repeat when the
          sect3 template does apply-templates -->

<!-- Format the inline title in this mode -->
<xsl:template match="sect3/title" mode="inline.title">
    <fo:inline xsl:use-attribute-sets="inline.sect3.title.properties">

The select="para[preceding-sibling::*[1][self::title]]" attribute translates
to "take a para element, look at its preceding-sibling elements, take the
first one, and use the para only if that first preceding-sibling is a title
