Subject: Customizing Xrefs to Appendices

In our DocBook customization, we’ve removed all section numbering in our appendices, but we still have xref’s in some of our manuals that reference those sections.  They end up displaying as “Section E.3, ‘Section Title’”.  We would like them to display as “Appendix E, ‘Section Title’”.


I understand how to create an l:template for a specific element, but I’m lost when it comes to defining the context.  Does anyone know how to tell DocBook to use a different xref format for a section in appendix compared to a section in a chapter?


Thanks in advance for your help.
