Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Alternatives to bridgeheads

Hi Bob,

Yes, simplesect does all those things.  You can control whether or not
they appear in the table of contents with the 'simplesect.in.toc'

Perfect. Thanks much!

Subject: [docbook-apps] Alternatives to bridgeheads

We're currently using <bridgehead> a lot to emulate <section>, mostly
where we don't want sections to be split out into separate HTML pages
(and where we can't prevent that simply via the chunking level).

<bridgehead> has a number of drawbacks, though, one of them being that
it's not a container element.

I guess we're looking for something that satisfies these requirements:

* Produces a separate (not inline) title, unlike <formalpara>
* Takes a <title>, so that it can be xref'ed without having to supply
the link text, unlike <bridgehead>
* Acts as a wrapper around the associated content, unlike
<bridgehead>, and unlike <formalpara> (which wraps only a limited set
of elements, not including lists for example)
* Does not produce a standalone section (unlike <section> which might
or might not depending on nesting depth)

I don't know of anything like that. Does it exist? Does <simplesect>
do all that?
