sect1|sect2|sect3|sect4|sect5 — Process explicitly-nested sections


<xsl:template match="sect1|sect2|sect3|sect4|sect5">
<xsl:param name="bridgehead" select="ancestor::preface|ancestor::colophon|ancestor::dedication|ancestor::partintro"/>
<xsl:variable name="template">

A. Description

Formats a section's title (including numbering, if applicable) then allows all child elements to be processed. The title is formatted the using LaTeX mapping identified by the element name (e.g. sect1 [2.0.9], etc.).

C. Template Parameters


If true(), the title is processed like a bridgehead [2.0.9] (that is, the section is unnumbered and does not appear in the toc [2.0.9]). This parameter defaults to false() unless the section appears within a preface.

B. Pertinent Variables

There are no configuration variables for this template.

D. DocBook Compliance and LaTeX Notes

Currently, “info” elements (e.g. sect1info [2.0.9]), subtitle [2.0.9] and titleabbrev [2.0.9] are not honoured.

The use of special components such as toc [2.0.9], lot [2.0.9], index [2.0.9] and glossary [2.0.9] is unlikely to be successful.
