DocBook XSL parameters and customization

The DocBook XSL stylesheets have many parameters that can be used to control the various aspects of the output document. For example, you can alter the default paper size, page breaking rules, or bibliography style. Besides parameters, it is also possible to customize DocBook XSL stylesheet's behavior with the DocBook XSL customization layer. supports both DocBook XSL parameters and DocBook XSL stylesheet customization. For changing the default DocBook XSL parameters, as well as for DocBook XSL customization, you need to create a special XSLT stylesheet, named custom-docbook.xsl and supply it among your documents (using the Images upload field). Below is represented a sample custom-docbook.xsl:

<?xml version='1.0'?> 
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 

    <xsl:param name="paper.type" select="'A4'"/>
    <xsl:param name="double.sided">1</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="">0.6in</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="page.margin.bottom">0.6in</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="toc.title.font.size">18pt</xsl:param>
