Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Inserting tag into generated text?

Hi Boris,
The simple answer is that you can't put tags inside attribute values. 
That's a limitation of XML.  If you are asking why an attribute value is 
used to hold gentext rather than an element body, I'm not sure.  I think it 
is to make the gentext work in any output mode, not just HTML or XSL-FO.

To do what you want, you generally have to make your own xsl:template that 
assembles the gentext components and wraps them in elements as needed.
