Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] mediaobject in lots tocs

The LOT element means "List of Titles."  If you are going to provide a list of things, having a title of them makes it much more usable.  If there is no title, you end up with a list of page numbers, which makes knowing which one to go to pretty difficult.  IMHO.

In general, only formal objects show up in lists of things that are auto 

Well that works, but doesn't meet my need.
Thanks Larry

Why only formal objects?  Arbitrary decision?
Anyone got the history?
