Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Embedding docbook documents in Website?

The DocBook Website DTD does not support article, so you can't
just add an <article> element.

But if you build your article in a separate process, the left list can
a reference to its HTML output.  See:

But the reference will not be a collapsed list of the section titles
in the article.  The left list is built from tocentry elements.
