Subject: FO XSL formatting questions


My colleague and I are modifying the DocBook XSL
stylesheets (v1.18, released May 2003) for FO to
ensure our documents conform to company formatting

I'm having trouble figuring out how to adjust the

- The book title should not be repeated above legal notice
- The TOC should start at i
- The header and footer text should be left/right aligned
- The header text should be the book title on the left
  and chapter titles on the right

Can anyone point me to the stylesheets or the attributes/
parameters that I need to modify to achieve these changes?

One other issue that is less of an issue, but equally
annoying, is that long tables sometimes do not start in
the middle of a page. Instead, they start at the top of
the next page, leaving a huge gap between the table title
and the table itself. Is there a "keep with next" flag
somewhere in the stylesheets that controls this behavior?

I've done as much as I can to figure these things out
on my own. However, I'm new to DocBook/XSL and acknowledge
that I may be missing some really obvious solutions. You're
help is greatly appreciated.
