Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] listitems and FO numbering

Title: KCC Stationery
Hi David,
The mode="item-number" template just returns a number, but it doesn't place it anywhere.   Trying to use float sounds hard, as you'll have to deal with alignment and such to match your other listitems.
I would suggest creating a customized copy of the template for the listitem itself:
<xsl:template match="orderedlist/listitem[@role='no_number']">
I would have it create two fo:list-items.  Put everything that precedes the first para in the first list-item's list-item-body, and give it an empty list-item-label.  Then put the first para and everything that follows it in the second list-item's list-body, and put the number in its list-item-label.  That would keep everything lined up the way you want.

Subject: [docbook-apps] listitems and FO numbering

Hello everyone,
I'm looking to control how the listitems are formatted in XSL-FO.  I have XML that is formatted like this for my list:

<listitem role="no_number">



<mediaobject><imageobject><imagedata fileref="A.tif"/></imageobject></mediaobject>


<para>some text<para>


What I'm trying to do is move the listitem number to the <para> tag instead of immediately rendering after the <listitem> tag.


Below is my XSLT modification to the <xsl:template match="orderedlist/listitem" mode="item-number"> template:


<xsl:when test="self::listitem/@role='no_number' and parent::orderedlist">

<!-- This dosnt render the listitem immediately after the element tag -->

<!--<xsl:apply-templates select="child::para[1]" mode="item-number" />-->

<fo:inline height="15pt" float="left" padding-right="2pt" >

<xsl:apply-templates select="ancestor::listitem[parent::orderedlist][1]" mode="item-number"/>


<xsl:number value="$item-number" format="{$type}"/>



<xsl:if test="parent::orderedlist/@inheritnum='inherit' and ancestor::listitem[parent::orderedlist]">

<xsl:apply-templates select="ancestor::listitem[parent::orderedlist][1]" mode="item-number"/>


<xsl:number value="$item-number" format="{$type}"/>




Any suggestions as to how I can correct this code to allow flexiblity in where a list item is rendered?
