Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Initial page numbering for book chapter?

Replying to myself, not sure though if there is not a better way to  
do this.

Le 5 juin 2006 à 11:50, Michèle Garoche a écrit :

I've customized like this:

<!-- Restart the numbering of first chapter to 1 -->
<xsl:template name="initial.page.number">
   <xsl:param name="element" select="local-name(.)"/>
   <xsl:param name="master-reference" select="''"/>

   <!-- Select the first content that the stylesheet places
        after the TOC -->
   <xsl:variable name="first.book.content"
                           not(self::title or
                               self::subtitle or
                               self::titleabbrev or
                               self::bookinfo or
                               self::info or
                               self::dedication or
                               self::toc or
     <!-- double-sided output -->
     <xsl:when test="$double.sided != 0">
         <xsl:when test="$element = 'toc'">auto-odd</xsl:when>
         <xsl:when test="$element = 'book'">1</xsl:when>
         <!-- preface typically continues TOC roman numerals -->
         <!-- Change page.number.format if not -->
         <xsl:when test="$element = 'preface'">auto-odd</xsl:when>
         <xsl:when test="($element = 'dedication' or $element =  
                     and not(preceding::chapter
                             or preceding::preface
                             or preceding::appendix
                             or preceding::article
                             or preceding::dedication
                             or parent::part
                             or parent::reference)">1</xsl:when>
         <xsl:when test="$element = 'chapter' and not  
(preceding::chapter)">1</xsl:when>       <!-- Addition -->
         <xsl:when test="generate-id($first.book.content) =

     <!-- single-sided output -->
