Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Different values for footer.column.widths on firstpage and rest of document?


Hi Bob,
This works.

Except that for the column that needs the whole space to itself, I 
needed to use the value:
<xsl:text>proportional-column-width(1)</xsl:text>
rather than just:
<xsl:text>1</xsl:text>

Thanks a lot for the help!

Regards,
Řystein
