Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] <part> Titlepage

Hi Lars,

I think it's just part.titlepage.recto.

However, for what you want to do, I think the title spec process is easier than you may think it is.

I think that all you need to do is copy titlepage.templates.xml to your customization, find the <title> element inside <t:titlepage t:element="book" > and add a space-before attribute (and any other attributes you need; you can change the font characteristics, align it in various ways, and move it up or down on the page using attributes).

Then use saxon or xsltproc to build your own titlepage.templates.xsl file from titlepage.templates.xml using the stylesheet named titlepage.xsl, which is in the template stylesheet folder in the standard stylesheet distribution (same level as the fo stylesheet folder). Then, import the result at the top of your customization.

While the title spec process can look daunting, it is designed to make it easy to do easy things. The complications come in when you want to do something outside the ordinary. So, you can ignore a fair amount of the recto/verso/auto stuff and just play with attribute values in the titlepage.templates.xml file. I'll bet that gives you all you need.

Good Luck,
