Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: HTML output with Jade - Problem


Thank you for your answer. What I would ideally need is the following:
chunks at chapters & books, NOT at the various section levels like sect1 or
sect2. And that seems to be the case for the DocBook compiled HTML version.
If you look at the chuncks and at the sgml source file, that seems to be the
case. Or do you have a different source for the HTML version ?
I also noticed that the chunking algorithm behaves strangely. If a chapter
has, say 3 sect1 sections and you output this using the HTML stylesheets the
result is puzzling. The first HMTL file contains the beginning of the
chapter plus the first sect1 section and the other 2 sect1 sections are each
rendered in a separate HTML file. Is this working as designed ?

Best Regards,

Stéphane Bline.
