Subject: RE: DOCBOOK-APPS: abbrev - missing possibility to add the meaning ofan abbreviation


I use <abbrev> in conjunction with biblio elements. In my oppinion, it
is not intended as standalone.

Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: abbrev - missing possibility to add the meaning
of an abbreviation


Hi,

I couldn't find any other docbook element for abbreviations than the
abbrev element.
But I find that this element only denotes the fact that a sequence of
characters is an abbreviation, and cannot explain what that abbreviation
means. idem for the acronym element.

I was missing an attribute for the purpose of adding the <abbr
title="etcetera">etc.</abbr> tags in an html output, that would make the
page accessibility compliant.

Is there another way to have the same result and (here comes th
question) are there any chances to update docbook with this feature.

cheers,
vincent mouton
