Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Navigation to cover and titlepage in epub

Hi Dave.

Let me have a look at this over the weekend. I know the problem you're talking about having seen it myself. If you could send me your stylesheet I'll take a look. Keith's right in that the change is quite hard in the current XSL. Let's see what can be done

This is a re-post. Keith's response was "Making the changes you describe would be fairly straightforward by hand in the EPUB file itself but would be very complex in the DocBook-XSL." I can send samples of my stylesheet if required; just unsure what would be useful at this stage.
I'm creating an epub with v 1.76 of the stylesheets and have included a cover image and titlepage. Both the cover image and all titlepage elements are specified within d:book/info. What I want in an epub is for the side navigation panel (toc.ncx) and the bottom nav buttons to navigate from cover image > titlepage > preface; so I need a toc link that says "cover" which will link to the cover image.
What I get instead in the toc is the title of the book as the first link, then preface below that. When I view the epub in Firefox, it opens at the cover image; then when I use the nav button at the bottom it goes straight to preface. Oddly, when I then click the back button from preface it goes to the cover image; it is not navigating to the titlepage.
So, using the side toc, the navigation links go from titlepage > preface (with no link to the cover image). Using the nav buttons, the nav goes from cover image > preface (with no link to the titlepage).
How can I:
1. include the cover image (which is cover.html) at the start of the toc
2. make the nav buttons work: cover > title page > preface (and back again in that order)
I note that the titlepage is given the filename index.html - is this what's causing problems with nav? (ie is there confusion between "index.html" and a back-of-book index?
