RE: [XSL-FO] Navigation on XSL-FO
- There is also the 'back' button that most pdf browsers offer of course.
Remember, don't over engineer your solutions. I'm sure Ken and Nicola
would agree that the extra hyperlinking, though useful, will take extra
processing for your FO engine.
Have you tried creating a bookmark, you simple add and extra bookmark
for the TOC.

I see Nicola did something similar to what we did in our XSLT
XSL-FO PDF books that we sell off our web site, but in our case
put the 26 letters of the alphabet in the footer and hyperlinked
individual character to that part of the index at the back of
book. Every page number is also hyperlinked to that page, and
XSL-FO book most references to formatting objects and properties
themselves hyperlinks to the summary page about that formatting
object or the property summary entry.
We also created external hyperlinks of every reference to a
of the specification document to the actual section of the
specification document on the web ... thus, when you want more
details about a formatting object or a property and you see the
specification section number you click on the section number and
pops up a web window and jumps you directly to the beginning of
The PDF becomes an index into the web document (or the entire

download and see what we did with hyperlinks ... go to the
free excerpts" link from our home page linked in our trailer
below. Jump to the last page (the title page isn't linked),
a letter, check out a property value, then jump to the
With <fo:basic-link> you just need to imagine what kinds of
navigation you want your users to experience.
As for showing only one item per page, you could either put each
into its own page sequence, or you could use break-before= or
I hope this helps.
