Subject: Re: [docbook] automated keywords and chunking

[moving this over to docbook-apps mailing list where stylesheet issues are 

By keywords I presume you mean generating <meta name="keywords"> in the HEAD 
element of each chunks?  If so, then you don't have to mess with the 
chunking machinery, you can use the placeholder template named 
'user.head.content' that is available for inserting custom content.  See:


That template is called with the node being chunked as the context node, so 
you should be able to select descendant::indexterm/primary elements and 
process them into the value of the meta element.
