Subject: Re: [docbook] Fo question

The handling of the part element in fo is different from other division 
type elements because the children of part (chapter, appendix, etc.) 
generate page sequences, and you cannot nest page-sequence in XSL-FO.  The 
part template must generate only the part divider pages.  This requires the 
template handling part to generate whatever page-sequences it needs for its 
titlepage, partintro, and TOC, close the last page-sequence, and then 
apply-templates to its other children to allow them to generate their own 
page-sequences.  That's different from the nesting of FO elements that is 
done for almost all other elements.

So the part templates are a bit confusing at first, especially since the 
handling is different if there is a partintro present.  If you don't use a 
partintro, then you can replace the original part template from 

<xsl:template match="part">
  <xsl:if test="not(partintro)">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="part.titlepage.mode"/>
    <xsl:call-template name="generate.part.toc"/>

with this customization:

<xsl:template match="part">
  <xsl:if test="not(partintro)">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="part.titlepage.mode">
      <xsl:with-param name="additional.content">
        <xsl:call-template name="division.toc"/>

The "part.titlepage.mode" template is used to generate the page sequence 
for the part title page. Normally it calls generate.part.toc after that 
page sequence, and generate.part.toc creates its own page-sequence too, 
which is why the toc was on a separate odd-numbered page.

The customization uses the "additional.content" parameter to put the 
division.toc (which is what generate.part.toc used to create the actual 
TOC) on the titlepage itself, and does not call generate.part.toc after the 

If you are using a partintro, you'll need to trace through that template to 
see where to apply this customization.
