Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Title with subtitle as olink generated text

Thanks for your fast response. Do I have to specify any parameter to <olink>s that refer to the book, for which I want to see the title and subtitle?
I have regenerated target.db with the proposed customization and <xreftext> is as you said, title and subtitle are concatenated.

Thanks again,

This is actually pretty easy. The olink mechanism shares many templates with the xref system.  The text that is generated for either link is generated by using apply-templates mode="xref-to".  By using a mode, different templates can be applied to each target element type.  So to add a subtitle for your books, you could add this to your customization layer:
<xsl:template match="book" mode="xref-to">
  <xsl:param name="referrer"/>
  <xsl:param name="xrefstyle"/>
  <xsl:param name="verbose" select="1"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="object.xref.markup">
    <xsl:with-param name="purpose" select="'xref'"/>
    <xsl:with-param name="xrefstyle" select="$xrefstyle"/>
    <xsl:with-param name="referrer" select="$referrer"/>
    <xsl:with-param name="verbose" select="$verbose"/>
  <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="object.subtitle.markup"/>
I just copied the original from fo/xref.xsl and added two lines for a space separator and subtitle processing.  When you generate your target.db file, you should see in the <xreftext> element for book both the title and subtitle.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Title with subtitle as olink generated text

Hi list,

I would like to use link to PDF documents using olinks. That's reasonably easy to do. I would like to create links that consist of title and subtitle of the book. I am referring to a book, not a chapter or a section. As generated text, the olinking machinery gives only the title of the book.
Is there any way to reveal the subject of the book?
I cannot combine the title and subtitle into a single title due to formatting issues. Namely, the subtitle should differ from the title and should be placed in the next line, under the title (as it is by default).
To complicate things, I'd love to see title and subtitle combined into one line, when I inspect the PDF properties.

Thanks in advance,
