Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: [docbook] how do i get a common parent with a unique id?

Did you mention what version of the stylesheets you are using?  The mode="class.attribute" was added in version 1.73.2.

I think when Norm Walsh designed the nested div elements in the titlepage
mechanism for HTML, he was allowing for customization of attributes at each
level of nesting.  But since most people don't do such customization with
XSL (they use CSS instead), then they become a lot of baggage.  This
customization trims down section output a bit:

<xsl:template name=" section.titlepage">
 <xsl:call-template name="section.titlepage.before.recto"/>
 <xsl:call-template name="section.titlepage.recto"/>
 <xsl:call-template name="section.titlepage.before.verso "/>
 <xsl:call-template name="section.titlepage.verso"/>
 <xsl:call-template name="section.titlepage.separator"/>

<xsl:template match="section" mode=" class.attribute">
 <xsl:attribute name="id">
   <xsl:call-template name="object.id"/>

It looks correct, but isn't working for me:

        <div class="section" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
          <h2 class="title" style="clear: both"><a id="the_title"></a>Title</h2>
          <p>The description</p>

I want to remove that <a id> generation and put the id on the outer <div>

I've managed to get the <h2> correct, but putting the id on the div is not working...it seems to not get parsed with mode=" class.attribute".

I removed it, and then I get an error that attributes cannot be added after children have already been inserted.
