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
image and all titlepage elements are specified within d:book/info. What I
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
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
epub in Firefox, it opens at the cover image; then when I use the nav button
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
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
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?
