idref attribute

Type:The id of an element in the document body
Used By:pagenumber

The idref attribute can optionally be used with the pagenumber element to specify that the pagenumber to be displayed is tha page containing that element. This is useful for a "table-of-contents" type of effect.

This creates a simple table-of-contents

  <tr><td>Chapter 1</td><td><pagenumber idref="chapter1"/></td></tr>
  <tr><td>Chapter 2</td><td><pagenumber idref="chapter2"/></td></tr>

<h1 id="chapter1">
<p>Contents of chapter one here</p>
<h1 id="chapter2">
<p>Contents of chapter two here</p>
