FAQ+TOC problem: force-toc option

         Key: FOR-559
     Project: Forrest
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Skins (general issues)  
    Versions: 0.7, 0.6, 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Jeremias Maerki
    Priority: Minor
 Attachments: forrest-force-toc.diff

This is a hybrid patch/RFE/bugfix. Today, I've taken another stab at the problem Clay Leeds
reported to you in May:

We have the problem in FOP that the TOC for the FAQ page isn't generated. I've found out what
the problem is and have a suggestion for improvement. Essentially, the problem goes away when
I change the skinconf.xml from:

  <toc max-depth="2" min-sections="3" location="page"/>


  <toc max-depth="2" min-sections="1" location="page"/>

The reason for the whole problem is actually totally simple. The faq2document.xsl stylesheet
creates exactly one top-level section. Due to the various checks in the stylesheet the TOC
is suppressed when min-sections is set to anything higher than 1. That's the work-around I'm
currently working with in FOP, but I think this can be improved. Setting min-sections to 3
or 4 is a very nice feature, but sometimes (like in the FAQ example), this is not ideal, so
I implemented a forcing mechanism, I will attach as a patch. Using the meta tag in the document
header is probably not the best idea but this let me add this feature without the need for
a change in the DTD. I'll leave it up to you guys, what to do with this. It's just a suggestion
and I've only patched the pelt skin so far. If this is nuts, just close the bug. :-) Thanks!
