Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Part of the docbook to be placed prior totitlepage

Well, I realized that conceptually it is better to generate navigation html
header on the fly - right before generatingthe 'book' XML. Then during XSL
processing the header is added to the generated HTML. This means the problem
is solved on my side.

Thanks anyway.
