OK. That leaves me asking 'when' it happens?
I.e. should my customization be using d:info or just info as the match

Drat! You guessed! I had to match on book with high priority to get that :-)

Which is the route I resorted to eventually!
(Except I don't like the revhistory presentation in pdf?
I wanted border='thin black solid' to make it look like a table with
the various component parts - but that is nit picking)

  So a template with

That's what I was missing, hence my customization efforts!

Not mentioned at

OK. Thanks Bob. I'll 'go figure'
I've never tried customizing titlepage.xsl!
