      I've looked at several examples and searched the archives but I'm just
      not getting it through my head how to do page sequencing for chapters.

      Maybe I'm going about this all wrong, any suggestions would be
      appreciated.

      My xml would look like:

      <pm>
      <chapter>
      <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
      <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
      <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
      </chapter>
      <chapter>
      <dmodule> content B</dmodule>
      <dmodule> content B</dmodule>
      <dmodule> content B</dmodule>
      </chapter>
      </pm>


      So the numbering would be Chap 1-1, Chap 1-2, Chap 1-3 depending on the
      number dmodules within chapter.

      Here is what I've tried but my result is all chapters numbered 1-1 and
      then all chapters numbered 2-1 within same file.

        When you use <xsl:number/> in the static content, the value is evaluated at
        the definition of the static content ... static content is *not* a
        placeholder that gets evaluated every time it is used.

        If you are doing a running header, have your static content do a
        <retrieve-marker/> and put <xsl:number/> into the marker that gets
        retrieved into the static content for each new page.

        As your flow defines new markers with updated dmodule numbers along the
        flow, the retrieval will pick up the "running value" and reflect it in the
        header.

        And I'm not sure why you are creating explicit static content "1-" and "2-"
        for each chapter when you can just have one static content definition and do:

        <xsl:number count="dmodule|chapter" format="1-1"/>

        which will give you "1-1", "1-2", "1-3", "2-1", "2-2", etc.

        I hope this helps.

            This is a follow-up to my earlier question. I have the chapters
            numbering correctly now, but would like the page numbers to restart with
            each dmodule within the chapter. I assume I need a new page sequence to
            accomplish this but I do not understand how to make this work. If I
            repeat the sequence I get the entire document again.

            When I started this we were just printing one dmodule at a time and
            everything worked fine but we have added the wrapper tags pm and chapter
            to put the book together.

            My xml would look like:

            <pm>
            <chapter>
            <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
            <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
            <dmodule> content A</dmodule>
            </chapter>
            <chapter>
            <dmodule> content B</dmodule>
            <dmodule> content B</dmodule>

              Your code appears to be trying to do *everything* inside of the processing
              of the root node ... my gut feel is that a modular approach will solve your
              problems.

              I hope this helps.
