Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Block at bottom of the title page


Remko,

I don't know a way to directly say, "put a block at the bottom," but you
can get the same effect by setting space-before in the appropriate place
in the titlepage-content in your titlepage.xml file.

The excerpt below will give you a title at the top of the page, then the
author 4 inches down. You can adjust as needed to get the position you
want.

Hope that helps.
