Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Chunking options for HTML output

Hi Frank,
I have some experience with customizing chunking in the stylesheet. Many of the features of DocBook XSL were designed to be easily customized, but chunking isn't one of them. So it is possible, but there are a lot of details that must be attended to. One of those details is navigation to Next and Previous, which is altered when you change chunking behavior.

There is a section in my online book on customizing chunking, including a section on "How chunking works", but it is not a complete guide. It does point out the files and templates that will need to be looked at.

I am wondering. DITA has the attribute "chunk" that gives the user
some control about how a topic/section is treated when it comes to
output chunking. Setting that attribute to "to-content", the topic
(including its children) is "… rendered as a single chunk of
content". Is there something similar in DocBook? I know that I can
control the chunking level – but that’s a different story. I need a
more fine-grain control for the chunking mechanism. Could this be
achieved in a customisation? Which "key" stylesheets in DocBook XSLT
would be promising candidates to look at?

Thank you! /frank
