Table of Contents
A list where each item is displayed with a bullet or other symbol, like a
ul list in HTML.
A list where each item is numbered sequentially, like a
ol list in HTML.
A list where each item has a term and an associated description, like a
dl list in HTML.
A complete description of all of DocBook's list elements can be found in DocBook: The Definitive Guide. This chapter focuses on using parameters and customizations to handle these three primary list types.
For print output, the title is processed in
mode="list.title.mode", with the
title as the context node. By default, that mode just calls the template named
formal.object.heading with the parent list element as its
object parameter. The result is that any list title formats like a figure title (without a number label). But if you want to customize how one kind of list title formats, you can create a template in that mode matching on that list type.
Customizing orderedlist titles for print: <xsl:template match="orderedlist/title" mode="list.title.mode"> <fo:block font-size="14pt" font-weight="normal" xsl:use-attribute-sets="normal.para.spacing"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </fo:block> </xsl:template>
For HTML output, you should copy the
formal.object.heading template from
html/formal.xsl to your customization layer and modify it as needed. In that template, the context node is the list element, not the title element. You can make the processing conditional on the list type by using an
xsl:choose statement as follows:
... <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="$object/self::orderedlist"> <!-- processing steps for orderedlist --> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <!-- processing steps for other formal object headings --> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose>
