Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: xrefs for figure naming.

/ Dave Pawson <daveP@dpawson.freeserve.co.uk> was heard to say:
| 'The ideas are shown in Figure 5.1. '
| The html to produce a hot link, the print output to produce
| plain text insertion.
| Presently, I have no idea what is a valid end term for xref.
| Is this a reasonable feature request?
| I think so.

Uh, yeah, but if you want them to be Figures, why aren't you putting
them in <figure> elements? If you then put the ID on the <figure>,
you'd get precisely what you want.

| in <xref linkend="fig5-1" endterm="fig5-1ref"/>. 
| <mediaobject id="fig5-1"> 
| <imageobject> 
| <imagedata fileref="../images/fig5-1.png" format="PNG"/> 
| </imageobject> 
| <textobject> 
| <para>This is the caption.</para> 
| </textobject> 
| <caption> 
| <para id="fig5-1ref">Figure 5.1. </para> 
| </caption> 
| </mediaobject>

Ah, the interesting wrinkle here is that these must be figures without

Is that the reason you're not using <figure>?
