Hello,

At the 10 December Austin ftf [1], I received an action
item to propose a technique for using XSL to transform content.

From the XSLT Recommendation, section "7.7 Numbering":

<BLOCKQUOTE>
The following example would number H4 elements in HTML with a three-part
label:

              <xsl:template match="H4">
               <fo:block>
                 <xsl:number level="any" from="H1" count="H2"/>
                 <xsl:text>.</xsl:text>
                 <xsl:number level="any" from="H2" count="H3"/>
                 <xsl:text>.</xsl:text>
                 <xsl:number level="any" from="H3" count="H4"/>
                 <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
                 <xsl:apply-templates/>
               </fo:block>
              </xsl:template>

</BLOCKQUOTE>

This may be used to create contextual numbering for
headers, which helps orientation.
