Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Italic character in <funcdef> and <paramdef>

It looks to me like the "n" here would be a replaceable value rather than a literal, so using <replaceable>n</replaceable> would be allowed and appropriate.  The stylesheet formats that element as italic monospace.  You could customize the template that matches on replaceable (in html/inline.xsl) to do regular italic.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Italic character in <funcdef> and <paramdef>

I'm working on a project to document a programming language. It outputs to HTML and conforms to DocBook 4.3. Within the function synopsis, we need to be able to insert an italicized character in the <funcdef> and <paramdef> tags.

Please see the example below. My use of <emphasis /> below is incorrect -- but is here just to show you what I am after. What I need is to have an italicized "n" after the type names. Does anyone know how I can achieve this within DocBook and using the Norm Walsh stylesheets?
