Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] screenshot element/moving List of Figures to the end?

No, screenshot does essentially nothing in the stylesheets.  It is simply a container, 
whose content is a mediaobject.

You could use mediaobject, but you would lose the distinction between screenshot 
images and other images, in case you wanted the stylesheet to do something different 
with screenshots (draw a box, etc.).

The order of content in a book's output is determined by the order of processing in 
the template with match="book" in the division.xsl file (fo or html).  You can copy 
that template to a customization and change the order there.

However, getting it between the content and the index is a minor problem, because the 
index output is triggered by the xsl:apply-templates when applied to the empty index 
element in the content.  As it is, there is no opportunity to put something between 
the rest of the content and the index.  You will need to change the template so it 
does not select index with the other elements, then process the figure list, then 
apply-templates to the index.

BTW, I would recommend in the future that you put each different topic in a different 
email.  I didn't notice the second question when I first read the mail.  8^)
