Docs are thin.

On-line DocBook needs more attention in this area.

However, I'm able to express the bnf, but I can't figure out how to
the description (several line paragraph) to the right-hand side.
Also, the example has a <nonterminal def="xxxx"> where xxxx ends up as a
a *hard* file link. How do I use that? Rendered output might be HTML or
so how would we know filename at this point? Or is that a style sheet

The paragraphs in my requirements example were interspersed with each
bnf rhs definition. How can I retain that clarity for the reader
such that each element definition is associated with a particular
bnf term? Breakup the equation into multiple <productionset> with
interspersed <para> ?

BTW: PSGML seems to be brain dead regarding EBNF :( 
     Heads-up, is someone looking at that?
