Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Suppressing chapter title

I assume creating an empty title element does not meet your needs.  Omitting a chapter 
title raises a bunch of details.

1.  Would you be marking the special chapter or title element with an attribute, such 
as condition="foo", or will the stylesheet be trying to match on the text of the 

2.  Would the chapter still be numbered, with just the title being blank, or do you 
want the chapter numbering sequence to "go around" the chapter with the missing title?

3.  Do you want the space preserved for the title on the chapter title page, or should 
the chapter content start at the top?

4.  Do you want the chapter omitted from the table of contents and PDF bookmarks?

Subject: [docbook-apps] Suppressing chapter title

What is the best way to suppress output of the title for one particular chapter (say, 
"Foo"), while leaving the other chapter titles unchanged?  I need to do this for both 
HTML and FO output.
