Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] <phrase> attribute

Yes.  It is like a compiler hint.  You can ignore it for your purposes.

I am planning to use it, for example, to dynamically generate custom 
documents on my website.

- An XSLT queries the XML file and finds all unique values for the role 

- It creates a form which provides a row of checkboxes for the user to 
select one or more role values

- When the user presses the "go" button, a document is dynamically 
generated which includes only those sections whose role attribute 
matches one of those selected, or which has no role attribute.
