Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] db5: simplesect with two section ancestors

A simplesect can indeed be a child of multiple section ancestors.  It
merely cannot have other structural children.  I am not sure exactly
what structure you are attempting, but a simplesect cannot have a
procedure following it, only simplesect, bibliography, glossary, index
or toc elements.  It could have one as a child, but you said you wanted
to follow it with one (as opposed to contain one).  Another alternative
would be to use the task element as a container of the procedure and
could be more semantically meaningful, depending on the actual intent of
your document design.

Subject: [docbook-apps] db5: simplesect with two section ancestors

Is it valid DocBook 5 to have a simplesect element with two section
ancestors (ie, section > section > simplesect)? It seems valid to me
from the description on docbook.org, but XMLMind doesn't seem to allow

(By the way, the rationale is that I'd like to have a short section with
a title such as "To do x:" followed by a short procedure. 'Section'
seems to overwhelm such a heading with section numbers; and as there are
no nested sections within, 'simplesect' seems more semantically
