Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Updating title page customizations for Docbook V5.0

Hi Bob,

thanks for the information -- I downloaded the snapshot of docbook5-xsl, and the title page templates are kicking in now, as expected, with no major problems based on quick testing. Sorry to have neglected to check the bug database before posting.

I originally chose to use "docbook" instead of "d" as my namespace prefix, but it seems that "d" is hard-wired into template/titlepage.xsl. Is "d" the ultimate prefix everyone is using for DocBook V5.0, or would it be worth it to make this configurable? It's not a big deal in practice as I can just declare both namespace prefixes with the same URI (seems to work), but it is kind of messy to have two.

Also, in the generated XSL file I see references to "d:bookinfo", but since that has been deprecated in favor of the new generic "info" element, I think those are redundant. I don't mention "bookinfo" in my custom title page spec, so I don't know where they come from, if not from template/titlepage.xsl. Curious but harmless.

Best regards
