Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] header.content customization bridgehead problem

Hi Joy,
It looks like you would need to customize the template with match="bridgehead" in fo/sections.xsl.  It seems that a bridgehead is treated as a section of the equivalent level when generating the markers.  After computing the equivalent section level of the bridgehead, the template sets a variable named "marker":
  <xsl:variable name="marker">
      <xsl:when test="$level &lt;= $marker.section.level">1</xsl:when>
So when the computed level of the bridgehead is less than or equal to $marker.section.level, then it sets the variable to 1. That variable is used later to generate the marker.  So set the variable's value to zero and no marker should be generated.
I can't explain why the bridgehead's marker is used when it is not the last one on the page.  What XSL-FO processor are you using?

Subject: [docbook-apps] header.content customization bridgehead problem

For my customization layer I want the header to display the first-including-carryover of the sect1 or section tag on the position left header. 
I have the following parameter set:
  <xsl:param name="marker.section.level">1</xsl:param>
and the fo retrieve marker
           <xsl:when test="ancestor::book and ($double.sided != 0)>
              <fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="section.head.marker"

However, it was noticed that bridgeheads also appear in the header which was not so much as problem as in some cases the header gets stuck on the bridgehead and displays it several pages later.

The bridgehead has only one single line para after it and then a new section starts on the same page so the bridgehead should not be selected in the first place because the sections after it should have been picked up.  The book I am noticing this on is one that uses many bridgeheads.

Is there some way I can turn off it picking up bridgeheads?
