I'm back with another one...
I'm trying to parse through two input files, one is DocBook the other is
XHTML that serves as a template. The template file has alternate
namespace tags within it to trigger certain actions. However, I'm not
sure how to tell where in the DocBook source I am at a given point in the
template. For example, I have the template:
<xsl:apply-templates select="$chapterTemplate/html" />
That should call the template file for each <chapter> element in the book.
However, later on I need to intercept certain tags and replace them with
the chapter number. That is,
Where <call:insert id="ChapTitle" /> is a placeholder in the template
file. How do I determine in the position() of the <chapter> from which it
is being called so that I can call back to it with the
<xsl:apply-templates /> tag?
Am I still technically within the same tree? If so, then I should be able
to use select="//chapter/title", shouldn't I? Although elsewhere in the
stylesheet I will need to reference the next and previous <chapter> tags
to the current one as well, which leaves me back with needing to know the
position() of the current <chapter> element.
