Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] How to remove blank pages between chapters using FOP

Hi Ken,
One way to do it is to set the stylesheet parameter double.sided to zero, 
which is the default value.  That turns off the generated blank 
even-numbered pages, but it also changes the headers and footers and 

To just change the starting page, you can customize the template named 
'initial.page.number' in fo/pagesetup.xsl.  When that stylesheet returns a 
value of auto-odd, you get the blank pages.  If you change that to 'auto', 
then it won't force the chapter starts onto an odd page.  The template 
handles various elements in different ways.  If you just want to change the 
behavior for any chapters after the first, then you just need to change the 
first xsl:otherwise clause:
