Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Cover pages for print output


Hi,
As you probably noticed, the titlepage spec file does not let you specify a graphic above the title and a different one below the title.
 
You could try bypassing the titlepage spec file mechanism and create a layout table for your title page:
 
http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/TitlePagePrint.html#TitlepageTableLayout
 
That should give you direct control of the page, without having to guess how the spec file mechanism is working (it is a bit of a black box). 
 
For the wide graphic, you could set the start-indent and end-indent to negative values to extend the table out to the page edges.  Be sure to include a start-indent="0pt" and end-indent="0pt" on your fo:table-body if you do that, or your table cells will inherit that outer start-indent.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Cover pages for print output

Hello all,

 

My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

 

Our documents have a custom cover page that has two graphics: one above title and one below it. After reviewing the DocBook XSL guide, I was able to figure out how to add a graphic to the top of the page, but I have yet to figure out how to add a second graphic. Is there a way to do this? These graphics actually go all the way to the edges of the pageófor a while I thought I could create a single image and use it as a background image for the cover page, but I havenít had any luck figuring that out either.

 

Iím using FOP to render the PDF output, if that makes any difference.

 

Thanks,
