That's pretty much spot-on :-) This is one of those specification documents that go into deeply nested short numbered sections. Often the sections are just a paragraph (or two), but they may contain tables and sometimes a bunch of subsections. Marking it up as one enormous list isn't ideal, as the items need to be in a ToC. And having sections that chunk into myriads of tiny pages isn't nice either. The one tricky bit I think is chunking this:: simplesect simplesect section simplesect How would that look? Maybe like this:: SECTION TITLE Section ToC simplesect1 title simplesect2 title subsection title simplesect3 title blah blah blah simplesect blah simplesect blah blah <a href="section.html">Subsection title</a> subsection abstract? simplesect blah blah blah > So if there existed a processing instruction, <?dbhtml > stop-chunking?>, that caused the xsls to stop chunking from that point > on, you could do this: That sounds like it could work, yes. It would require you to manually toggle between chunking and not-chunking when you reach a fat section, though. And you'd have to remember to update the PIs if you restructured the document.
