Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Changing the filenames exported from the chunk .xsl?

Hi Charlie,
There is a utility stylesheet maketoc.xsl that is included in the DocBook 
distribution that generates a structured TOC that might suit your needs.
Normally it is used to precisely control chunking, but you could possibly
use it in your application.  See the section titled
"Manually control chunking" in:
