Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Customising Title Pages Tutorial?
Hi Paul, Customizing titlepages is not that hard as it seems. I try to explanin how I did it. Are you familiar with the concept of XSL customization layers? If not, try to get an overview on that topic. To customize a titlepage you should build up such a customization layer, e.g. by lets say defining a custom.xsl file (e.g. in cstm_xsl/html). Custom.xsl might look like this: <stylesheet ... <xsl:import href="../docbook-xsl/html/docbook.xsl"/> ... 1) Add <xsl:include href="cstm_titlepages.xsl"/> to your customization layer. As you will see cstm_titlepages.xsl is the file we will generate later on. 2) Copy titlepage.templates.xml in XSL distribution to your cstm_xsl/html dir. Name it e.g. cstm_titlepage.templates.xml. 3) Perform your changes in the cstm_titlepage.templates.xml file, e.g. <!--<copyright/>-->. 4) Then call xsltproc -output cstm_titlepages.xsl ../../docbook-xsl/template/titlepage.xsl cstm_titlepage.templates.xml That sould result into a file called cstm_titlepages.xsl (the one we included in step 1)) which keeps xsl templates with the changes you made in the xml templates file. Be sure to call xsltproc from your cstm_xsl/html directory. Otherwise the output might be placed in anywhere (e.g. your home dir). 5) From now on you should call cstm_xsl/html/custom for DB2HTML transformation instead of docbook-xsl/html/docbook.xsl. Hope this works for you. Cheers. Ludger -----Original Message----- From: Paul Moloney [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Dienstag, 18.

Hi all, I'm attempting to set up a docbook environment that uses XMLMind, xsltproc & fop, with varying degrees of success. One area which has completly stumped me so far has been trying to customise title pages. I've been following this page http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/TitlePagePrint.html but with not much luck; my XSLT knowledge is still fairly bitty. Is there a tutorial out there on how to completely customise such a page, with a detailed run-through example?
