Uniform Info Elements

  • DocBook V4.x has setinfo, bookinfo, chapterinfo, appendixinfo, sectioninfo, etc.

  • Many people think it would be nicer if there was just one info element.

  • In DTDs, this can’t be done without sacrificing the ability to customize the info elements on a contextual basis.

  • In RELAX NG, we can have different patterns that each define an element named info.
