      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
      in the
      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
      that section.

      The PDF becomes an index into the web document (or the entire
      web for
      that matter!).

      There are freely downloadable excerpts of both books that you
      download and see what we did with hyperlinks ... go to the
      "Books &
      free excerpts" link from our home page linked in our trailer
      below. Jump to the last page (the title page isn't linked),
      jump to
      a letter, check out a property value, then jump to the
      section number.

      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
      break-after= properties.

      I hope this helps.
