Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Wrap some elements in a titlepage spec file?

That question would need to be directed at Norm Walsh, the creator of the titlepage system. Not sure he would remember why. He wrote the original code when XSL was new.

No, the template system is not set up for nesting titlepage elements.
ÂIt uses the element name of each child of t:titlepage-content to

should appear, in what order, and with specific properties, without
having to write XSL.

Thanks for the confirmation.

For more complex needs, I have used the t:named-template feature to
call a custom template (see for example the title element for book),
which could process both title and subtitle. Most often, though, I
just write the XSL I need in custom templates "book.titlepage.recto"
and "book.titlepage.verso" to completely override the generated
I had already figured that would be necessary.

Is there a reason why 'titlepage.xsl' constructs XSLT elements the long way:

 <xsl:element name="xsl:template">

rather than using the namespace alias feature of XSLT 1.0: [1]

 <xsl:namespace-alias stylesheet-prefix="axsl" result-prefix="xsl"/>

 <xsl:template ...>
