The book at xml.web.cern.ch is the early first draft of my book

I have asked Cern to take down that version, but have not reached the
right person, I guess.

They had copied the entire XSL FAQ at one time.

http://xml.web.cern.ch/XML/olddocs.html  lists the set of files they

Regarding your question, are you using DocBook 4 or 5?  If 5, then
your templates need to include the DocBook namespace on element
names, such as d:book.  See this page for more information:

I've looked into this further, and I have managed to customise the
xref text using the gentext templates. My next question is how do I
format the xreftext?

I've read and tried to implement the Customising Cross Reference
Style section from:

by adding the following template to my FO customisation layer:

    <xsl:template match="book" mode="insert.title.markup">
      <xsl:param name="purpose"/>
      <xsl:param name="xrefstyle"/>
      <xsl:param name="title"/>

        <xsl:when test="$purpose = 'xref'">
          <fo:inline font-style="italic">
            <xsl:copy-of select="$title"/>
          <xsl:copy-of select="$title"/>

but this template does not seem to be having any effect. Any tips
as to what I am doing wrong here?

I can see that the chapter and appendix xreftext are italicized
(from the standard templates in xref.xsl), but I can't get the same
thing to happen for the book elements.



I'm trying to link between books (without hot-links).

The text that is generated for everything but the top-level books
is fine. It renders Refer to <olink targetdoc="bookDocId"
targetptr="section"/> as Refer to Section x,y, "Title" in Book

But when I olink to the book itself: Refer to <olink
targetdoc="bookDocId" targetptr="bookId"> there is no fo:inline
element, it just renders the book title: Refer to Book Title.

Is there some configuration or customisation that I can do to get
this to render as something like Refer to Document "Book Title".

I'm using docbkx 2.0.15 which uses version 1.78.1 of the
