Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Problem with cover

Hi Jacques,
I'm trying to picture your output in my mind, and I think what you are seeing is a 
page that has the content of your "front.cover" template, followed by a titlepage with 
the book's title and author, followed by a copyright page.  I infer that from this:

"I still have a kind of cover, after the front cover I made."

I'm guessing that this is the standard DocBook recto title page, which would appear 
after the cover page if that is defined.  Do you desire to have just the cover page 
and the copyright page in your output?

I found in the list archive an answer form you:

> <xsl:template name="front.cover">

>    <xsl:with-param name="master-reference">titlepage</xsl:with-param>

> content-width="7cm" [add any other image properties here]/>
>      </fo:block>
>    </xsl:with-param>
>  </xsl:call-template>
> </xsl:template>

I put this sample on my custom stylesheet and it seems to work.

I wrote "seems to work" because, even a remove all <cover> references, I
still have a kind of cover, after the front cover I made.

In the front.cover template I added some search for informations about
my book:

  <xsl:template name="front.cover">
  <xsl:call-template name="page.sequence">
    <xsl:with-param name="master-reference">titlepage</xsl:with-param>
    <xsl:with-param name="content">
      <fo:block text-align="center">
  <fo:inline font-size="24pt">
  <xsl:apply-templates mode="book.titlepage.recto"
  <xsl:text> NAME</xsl:text>
        <fo:external-graphic src="url(images/Serveur.tif)"

But the firstname does not appears (the NAME after does). In my docbook
file the fistname... exist :

> <info>
> <title>Mac OS X Server à votre service</title>
> <edition>Seconde</edition>
> <authorgroup>
> <author>
> <personname>
> <firstname>Jacques</firstname>
> <surname>Foucry</surname>
> </personname>
> </author>
> </authorgroup>

So my questions are: how can I delete the <cover> and with my firstname
does not appears.

Thanks in advance,
