Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Endnotes in PDF?


Thanks for your message. I think where I'm stuck is the customization layer of the DocBook XSL template. I already use Bookends as a reference manager.

The only discussion of endnotes I found (linked in my message) is fromÂBob Stayton'sÂDocBook XSL: The Complete Guide. However, it requires a much higher level of understanding how to customize the DocBook template than I have now. The audience of the discussion is described as needing "extensive knowledge of XSLT programming, and familiarity with the internals of the DocBook XSL stylesheet collection".

I'm not this kind ofÂadvanced developer, so I've come to this forum in hopes that somebody could perhaps suggest how to customize the template, to make endnotes appear properly in my PDF.

I'm trying to use DocBook and FOP to generate endnotes at the end of my book. I.e., I'd like the footnote elements to be rendered as endnotes, not footnotes.

If possible, I'd like them grouped by chapter (but at the end of the book, not at the end of each chapter).

I've searched a lot, and only found a discussion here:

...but it's too vague. Too many loose ends. I can't get it to work at all.

Any suggestions??



I have written a book (some 700 pages} with docbookxml and Oxygen. For citations I used Jabref and exported to docbookxml. I may take me some time to prepare a minimal example. The process worked very well. You only had to maintain the references in Jabref which is a free tool and well maintained. The solution to export references to docbook has been developed with me in the lead. It is now incorporated in the main version of Jabref.
