Display graphics for book title page

The stylesheet p3-cover-titlepage.xsl has all features and instructions to set up text and logo styles for the title page. The book title page details that can be set in the stylesheet are:

XML markup to edit

The book title page has recommended values for the role attribute as shown in the following table.
XML tagging Description
<edition role="title"> xxx </edition> Allows you to set text styles and spacing for the edition number to appear on the title page only (and not the imprint page).
<authorgroup role="leadauthor"> xxx </authorgroup> Allows you to set the vertical space before the first author's name in PDF output, and use a different vertical spacing value between the lead authors' full names.
<authorgroup role="coauthor"> xxx </authorgroup> Allows you to set the vertical space before the first coauthor's name in PDF output, and use a different vertical spacing value between the coauthors' full names.
<authorgroup role="editor"> xxx </authorgroup> Allows you to set the line height and vertical space before the editor's name in PDF output.
<authorgroup role="contributor"> xxx </authorgroup> Allows you to set the vertical space before the first contributor's name in PDF output, and use a different vertical spacing value between the contributors' full names.
<mediaobject role="title"> xxx </mediaobject> Allows you to set on the title page the vertical space before the publisher's logo, its alignment, and the left and right margins. The "role" attribute in this case treats the formatting of a graphic on the title page separately from a graphic on the imprint page.

You can place the processing instruction <?lnbr?> inside the title or subtitle text to create a single line break—that is, to force the text that occurs after the processing instruction onto the next line. This applies to all ebook formats.
