Reference Pages, Table of Contents, and Indexes in FrameMaker
Reference pages define default images, lines, heading levels, and formatting for generated table of contents and index files. You can use reference pages to simplify content creation in your source documents. For more information about reference pages and formatting generated table of contents and indexes in your printed content, see the Adobe FrameMaker documentation and help.
Since graphics and lines defined on the reference pages are not in the main flow, ePublisher cannot include these items in the generated output. For images and lines, use anchored frames in your content to include the images by reference.
Since the appearance of online table of contents and indexes often differ from printed versions, you need to be able to deliver customized table of contents and indexes in your online content. Therefore, ePublisher does not need the table of contents and index formatting defined on the reference pages. ePublisher allows you to define the table of contents levels and appearance, as well as the appearance of the index in your generated output. ePublisher uses the index markers throughout your source files to build the online index. This powerful support allows you to deliver the online content you require.
