You can make the change permanent by adding it in the FOP convenience script, such as fop. Although most people will run FOP using its included convenience scripts, it is wpache to know where the files are.
Note The output produced in the following examples was produced using a customisation of the stylesheets hence output on systems not implementing the same customisations may differ. FOP is distributed as a zip file, which can be opened on almost all systems.
Installing an XSL-FO processor
If you are using the Arbortext processor, then set the arbortext. One does not have to encapsulate the mediaobject in a figure object but doing so allows one to provide a title and be able to have the figure listed in a list of figures at the beginning of the document.

Unfortunately at the time of writing the tools used to convert FO to PDF either did not yet implement this feature or were in a broken state with regards to this feature so no pictorial examples can be provided. The morerow attribute specifies how many more rows the entry it is applied to should span:.
In order to execute this conversion you will need to have generated XSL FO output by using xsltproc or some other tool capable of doing so.
From DocBook to PDF using Apache FOP
The type of enumeration is specified dcbook the numeration attribute like this:. Some stylesheets may define that nested lists are of a different dcbook by default. The overall encapsulating element is figure the reference page for which can be found at http: There are gzipped tars and RPMs available, download whichever you prefer.
