    Hi there!

    I am starting work on a DocBook XML project that will be published as a two
    volume set of books. Each of these books must contain an index to both
    books, with page number citations of the form "I-123" for page 123 of volume

    DocBook XML appears to have all the tools to model this. I can enclose the
    two <book>s in a <set> and end both <book>s with a <setindex>.

    Things are less straightforward when it comes to the rendering process,
    though. As far as I can tell, XSL-FO in general and XEP in particular don't
    let you produce two output documents from a single source document in one
    process, do they?

    I would appreciate any suggestions on how to go about producing two
    PostScript output files which share page number citations as described
