Will there be in DB 4.3? No. Here is a list of the elements with a 'status' attribute: appendix article bibliodiv bibliography book chapter colophon dedication glossary glossdiv part preface refentry reference refsect1 refsect2 refsect3 refsection sect1 sect2 sect3 sect4 sect5 section set It looks like it is used on hierarchy elements only. I suspect that is because "draft" is indicated in print output with either a page watermark or header/footer designation, both of which can be implemented with a page-sequence. Block elements like note would require some other means of showing the draft status. -- Bob Stayton 400 Encinal Street Publications Architect Santa Cruz, CA 95060 Technical Publications voice: (831) 427-7796 The SCO Group fax: (831) 429-1887 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
