Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] styling refentry blocks

Hi Paul,
The problem is that your template is replacing the original template for 
refentry, which is in fo/refentry.xsl.  The original template output an id 
attribute that is necessary for references.  In there, you'll see this bit:

  <xsl:variable name="id">
    <xsl:call-template name="object.id"/>

and this bit:

    <fo:block id="{$id}">

That will restore the missing id targets for references.

Or you could just replace xsl:apply-templates in your template with 
xsl:apply-imports, which will instead wrap your fo:block with style 
attributes around the fo:block generated by the stock template (which will 
have the id). Both approaches should work.  The latter means other features 
of the original refentry template will be retained, and updates will 
automatically be used.

Regarding turning off verbatim styling inside refentry, each attribute value 
in an attribute-set can be computed with a conditional xsl:choose statement, 
which is evaluated each time the attribute-set is applied.  Something like 

<xsl:attribute-set name="monospace.verbatim.properties">
  <xsl:attribute name="background-color">
      <xsl:when test="ancestor::refentry">inherit<xsl:when>

Subject: [docbook-apps] styling refentry blocks

> border-style="solid" border-color="#575757" padding="3pt">
>    <xsl:apply-templates/>
>   </fo:block>
>  </xsl:template>
> Style-wise, it works. However, it breaks all references within the

> As an added complication, we have a similar background colour and
