Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DocBook Markup


I want to write DIVs instead of Tables ultimately.  This is where web pages are going as there are several problems with tables in HTML.

The other possible answer is that if you have a customization layer, you can make divs appear any place you want.

I have been looking around on the web for a while and the excellent www.sagehill.net site but I have been unable to work out what DocBook markup can be used that will be converted to a DIV in the HTML output.

Is there such an element that I can use for this?

Thanks, Russell
