Subject: Re: [docbook] Add the book name to the title

[moving this over to the docbook-apps mailing list where stylesheet issues 
are discussed.]

Hi Jon,
As you discovered, variable references in gentext are not processed.  There 
is a template named 'substitute.markup' in common/gentext.xsl that handles 
replacing the % placeholders with generated text.  You would need to 
customize that template to resolve variable references.

I would caution about adding the book title in the 'title-numbered' context, 
as that gentext may be used in other places besides the HTML head title. 
Instead, I would focus on the template where that HTML title element is 
generated.  That template is named 'head.content' and it is in 
html/docbook.xsl.  You could customize that template to add the book title. 
A variable reference could be used there.

Subject: [docbook] Add the book name to the title

> Hi.  Currently in the <title> section of our html, we list the number
