Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Generating a customized TOC & chunking.
Two possible starting points using the base DocBook stylesheets: * Olink databases, if you use olinks. To quote 'Target database additional uses' in Chapter 24 of Stayton's book: "You may find additional uses for the target database that keeps track of potential olink targets. The database contains structured information about a collection of documents. The information includes the hierarchy of division and section elements, with enough information to form links to them. You could, for example, generate a master table of contents for all of your documents." I use a sitemap to generate HTML breadcrumbs, for example. * eclipse/eclipse.xsl (Chapter 24) generates an Eclipse toc and manifest. Maybe you could customize that stylesheet.
