Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Formatting Authors etc.

/ Colin Paul Adams <colin@colina.demon.co.uk> was heard to say:
| If I specify an <editor>, and several <othercredit>s, I have
| to use only the <firstname> tag for all the <othercredit>s, as otherwise
| it spreads <firstname> <othername> and <surname> over 3 lines, but the
| <editor> name appears all on one line anyway.
| Multiple editors and nothing else formats well, though.


| If I specify an <author> and one <othercredit>, the print style-sheet
| formats this as:
| and (author-name)and (othercredit-name)
| which is most horrible to read (leading and, no space before second
| and). The html style-sheet doesn't format this at all (probably because
| it is only <chapterinfo> within a book ?).

Send me a short test document, please.

| Two <author>s appears to format OK, but if I add a <copyright> notice for
| both authors (two <holder> statements), I have to prefix
| (initial-blank)and(blank) to the contents of the second <holder>
| tag.

Fixed, I think.

| And on the html style-sheet, the Copyright information is tagged
| on to the author information, with neither a space nor a line break,
| looking most ugly (the print style-sheet throws in a line break, so
| that's OK).

Again, a sample, please.

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com>      | You look wise. Pray correct that
