Subject: Re: [docbook] Whatever happened too CSS+XML?

I thuink too, that this would be the right way. When I startet using 
DocBook, in fact I expected this behaviour, and I was nearly 
dissappointet when i saw that I was wrong.

Yes, this is just what (X)HTML was ment for - markup. 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.

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.
