Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Spanning index title

This problem of making the index title span multiple columns is harder than
it seems it should be. First, the index.div.title.properties attribute-set
applies to the letter division titles such as A, B, C, etc.  It does not
apply to the "Index" title.

The problem is that a span="all" property must be on an fo:block that is the
immediate child of fo:flow. The DocBook XSL stylesheets were not designed
with that in mind.  The titlepage templates generate several levels of
nested fo:block before getting to the "Index" title, so a span placed on one
of the inner blocks simply does not work.  You have to customize the
template that generates the page-sequence for the index, as well as the
template named 'index.titlepage'.

You might file a feature request on the DocBook XSL Sourceforge site to make
this easier.
