b) Should not appendix be forced to start on a new page
Ok then why it does not and I have to add an extra processing
instruction to force it
2. If appendix is not back-matter what are back matters
Perhaps a personal choice, but I'd be happy with
appendix as bm.
So if it is back matter then
should make my appendix pages with two column format but it does not.
Any ideas ?
Saxon + Docbook-XSL 1.55.0 + XEP 2.77 is the trio I use
In fact, the XSL FO stylesheets do not treat an appendix
in an article as back matter. There is a special template
in fo/component.xsl with match="article/appendix" that
processes the appendix as if it were a section.
It doesn't start a new page-sequence. I think that is
because the content model for article has appendix as
a sibling of sect1, which differs from the book content
model where appendix is a component (chapter, etc.).
An article is processed in fo as a single page-sequence
(its template starts and ends a page-sequence, with
all its content in between). You would have to customize
the article template as well as the article/appendix
template to stop the article page sequence and start
a new page sequence for appendix.
You might be better off creating a book that contains
an article and an appendix. Then the appendix will
be treated as backmatter.
