So that'd be a customisation layer in the style sheet then?  Is this the 
right place? http://www.dpawson.co.uk/docbook/styling/custom.html

I have a xsl sheet with some parameter changes, will the above change be 
more complex?  Like using a template to generate the correct style and 
then changing it to how you suggested?

Sorry it's not a superscript!  I also changed the tag from literallayout 
to para and it's fixed.  The original docbook was

   <callout arearefs="portable">
     <anchor id="main.port.anch"/><literallayout>both in terms of 
compilers and platforms</literallayout>

It may get wrapped here, but the literallayout tags were on one line, 
the html generated contained a div tag when this was changed to a span 
tag the (1) and the text were on one line.

http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/ch01.html at the very bottom!  Those 
little linked notes labelled 1, 2, etc are what I want to do.
