Everything else can be done with CSS. If you then also could tell the XSL-Transformation to use a specific template, e.g tell it that it should output the TOC at the beginning AND the end (not whithin the DocBook sourcefile itsself, but wehen transforming it into it's destination format), you can really make every posible layout without retrandforming the DocBook files. > The classic showpiece is css Zen Garden: > http://www.csszengarden.com/ Good example how it *should* be.. Another example what cool beahivour can be made with only CSS is http://der-dirigent.de/ (german) Anyway - it qwould be really great if there was a way to do this. regards, Peter Körner
