Subject: DOCBOOK: itemized list within <para> or after </para>??
ok, this is *really* anal retentive, but i'll bet folks have an opinion on it. if i want an opening paragraph, followed by a list, as in: Before you try to make your own beer, you should have the following at hand: * hops * barley * water * hard liquor for when you get frustrated is it proper to make the itemized list a sub-element of the paragraph, or to close the <para> and have the itemized list as the next element at the same level? aesthetically, it doesn't appear to make any difference, but TDG under "Para" suggests that "Some processing systems may find the presence of block elements in a paragraph difficult to handle". (p. 351) so, any strong opinions either way? rday Robert P. J. Day, RHCE, RHCI Eno River Technologies, Chapel Hill NC Unix, Linux and Open Source corporate training http://www.linux-migration.org
