Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Page break before sect1 elements, but only in articles


I'm not sure how to do this based on the doctype, but
here is a way to do it based on the root element, which
I think yields the same result.

In your customization layer, include the following:

  <xsl:variable name="sect1break">
      <xsl:when test="/article">page</xsl:when>

  <xsl:attribute-set name="section.level1.properties">
    <xsl:attribute name="break-before"><xsl:value-of

The xsl:variable element sets the variable "sect1break" to "page"
if the root element is article and assigns it to "auto" otherwise
("auto" is a "no-op" value that causes the property to be discarded).

Hope that helps.

Is it possible to solve this problem without having to use different 
stylesheets for articles and books?

Any suggestions are welcome.
