Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Using <h1> for chapter titles in HTML output

Hi Peter,

I thought Bob Stayton replied to this last week but perhaps you missed the answer!

He mentioned the template called 'component.title' in html/components.xsl This calculates the h-number to use for the title of
a component. However, there is also 'section.heading' in sections.xsl that performs a similar task. You should be able to play with these
to achieve what you're looking for.

I posted this question about altering the HTML element used for chapter
titles a few days ago.  To ask it more concisely:

Does anyone know how to customize HTML output so that <h1> is used for
chapter titles instead of <h2>?  A hint regarding the point in the XSL
to experiment with would help me.

If I am omitting important details or if this information is available
elsewhere, please let me know and accept my apology for the double

Again, my thanks for your generous help.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Using <h1> for chapter titles in HTML output

I am trying to customize HTML output so that MS Word will 
open the HTML files in a way that produces consistent 
paragraph styles.  In particular, I want chapter titles in 
the DocBook content to become <h1> elements so that they 
eventually map to the default "Heading 1"
paragraph style in MS Word.  By default, the chapter title is 
output in an <h2> element.

My searching the docbook-apps archives, HTML parameter 
documentation, and experimenting with XSL customizations has 
not turned up an answer for me.

Can anyone point me to a configuration that will cause 
chapter titles to appear in the HTML <h1> element?

In case it matters, the DocBook content uses <section> 
elements rather than <sect1>, <sect2>, and so on.  Also, I 
don't mind that the <book> title is already <h1>.  Having 
both the book and chapter titles use <h1> is not a problem for me.

Thanks for your help.
