Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] How to print only a chapter of a document ?

Hmm, that gives me an idea. I'm assuming he'd prefer a programmatic way
to produce the output that doesn't involve a human using Acrobat each
time. Some (all? I know xep does...I assume the others do as well) fo
renderers can output an intermediate xml format that contains all the
pagination information. They can also render this xml output as a pdf.
I'll bet you could run an xslt over the intermediate xml output from the
fo renderer to remove the unwanted chapters and then render the xml
output into a pdf.
