Yes, indeed ... Unfortunately, I do not understand enough about the
structure of the tree to get there.

I tried using sgml-tree-root or some such, but that was a dismal failure.

How do I get from the current-node to, say, the top of the tree, which is
where I imagine I can do something like (select-elements (top-of-tree)
(normalize "title")) and also for subtitle ...
