Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] How To: get HTML title when using inlinemediaobject for article title?

If you look at how the <title> element is generated in html/docbook.xsl, 
you will see:

  <xsl:param name="title">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="$node" 

    <xsl:copy-of select="$title"/>

That mode is defined in common/gentext.xsl for all elements as:

<xsl:template match="*" mode="object.title.markup.textonly">
  <xsl:variable name="title">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="object.title.markup"/>
  <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space($title)"/>

The variable $title will have an <img> element in it as a result of 
mode="object.title.markup", but then the normalize-space() function is 
used, which only returns text and not empty elements like <img>.  You'll 
need to customize this mode to handle the mediaobject in a different way to 
get the text portion of it.
