Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] no header and footer rules on first page

Well, that information is there in the book, but perhaps not under the subheadings that you were looking at.  In
you will find:

"The header.table template in fo/pagesetup.xsl lays out the table rows and cells in the page header. Likewise the footer.table lays out the footer area. You can customize either template to write a table to display whatever combination of rows and cells and spans you want, expressed in XSL-FO table elements."


"If you want to change which page classes have these rule lines, then you will need to customize the template files that create the tables that format the headers or footers. These templates are named header.table and footer.table, and they are located in fo/pagesetup.xsl."


"If you find the table layout used in headers and footer to be too restrictive, you can always replace the header or footer table with your own XSL-FO layout. You'll need to customize the template named header.table or footer.table from fo/pagesetup.xsl. You can keep the same template name and template parameters, but you can customize how the information is used within the header or footer space."

I don't mean to criticize you for not finding the information, because I know that finding the right information is not always easy.  It is always a struggle to organize and present complex information like these stylesheets in a way that makes it easy to find what you are looking for.

First of all: Thank you very much for your answers. It realy helps to find a solution for the described problems.
After I writing this email, I find the right parts in pagesetup.xsl. I copied the templates for content.header, footer.header, header.table and footer.table in my customization layer and costumized them. It's a pity, that this isn't described in die DocBook-XSL-Guide and I have searched a long time by myself for the right solution without any help. Only a little hint to look into the pagesetup.xsl and search for above-named templates would be very nice.
Sorry for worrying you with my stupid question.

Best regards

Hello everybody,

I want to turn off header and footer rules on titlepage, but can't find a solution in the DocBook-XSL-Guide. The position of text in header is positioned on the top. I want to have it on the middle or bottom.

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
