Subject: Title-page customization - is it just me ?


I'm sure it is me, but I can't seem to get this to work.....


I want to customize my (PDF via FO) document.

I want to make the title-page a separate page, ie to insert a page-break.  My document is an <article>.

I'm using docbook-xsl-1.77.1 stylesheets, and Docbook 5.


Following the instructions in Bob's book I've taken a copy of fo\titlepage.templates.xml.

I process it using template\titlepage.xsl and Saxon 6-5-5.  I call the result mytitlepages.xsl.

If I then compare my mytitlepages.xsl with the supplied fo\titlepage.templates.xml I find that all the elements which are <fo:block> in the given file are <block> in my generated one.

For example :

    published:  <fo:block xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" font-family="{$title.fontset}">

    generated:  <block font-family="{$title.fontset}">

If I then <import> my generated file I get streams of error messages - the first of which is :

Error at fo:block on line 342 of file:/C:/Users/Richard/Downloads/DocBook/docbook-xsl-1.77.1/fo/refentry.xsl:
  No attribute-set exists named refnamediv.titlepage.recto.style

and the others are similar.

I am assuming these are being caused by this inconsistency in the xsl.


Can anyone advise what I might be doing wrong ?

I am assuming that as the published stylesheets have been around for a while they are right ....

And that Bob's book is accurate.


Note that at this stage my local titlepage.templates.xml is unmodified, yet is showing this inconsistency.  I would expect processing the published titlepage.templates.xml would generate a copy of the published titlepage.templates.xsl.



Once I've got this aspect sorted my next task will be to work out exactly what I  need to put where to get a page-break after the article recto title page.









Once I've got the title page on a separate page I'll want to move the revision history somewhere else, ie to near the end of the document.

Actually I want it at the end, since it would be before the Index, but there isn't an Index.

And then I'm going to want two separate Revision Histories, one for the document and one for the software to which it refers.
