Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Orderedlist continuation

Hi Daniel,
DocBook The Definitive Guide for version 4  is still useful for that kind of
information.  See:


DocBook 5 is written in RelaxNG, which has no native way of defining default
values for attributes.  The DocBook Technical Committee just discussed
default values for attributes:


They felt that orderedlist's continuation attribute was one of the more
obvious default values that could just be documented.  So the next edition
of the Docbook 5 doc should have that information.
