It seems like there ought to be a parameter that controls which is
used in the TOC, because I think different people would have
different ideas of how titleabbrev should be used. You could file a
feature request on the DocBook SourceForge site to make this a future
There is no need for RFE. I added such parameter few months ago. Just set
<xsl:param name="index.prefer.titleabbrev" select="1"/>
in your customization layer.
The question though was whether there was a similiar parameter to express
preference for "title" or "titleabbrev" in the toc. Bob Stayton's answer
was no, and that it was necessary to modify the xsl script to force "title".
