Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Storing data within Docbook?

Oh, wow, I didn't understand at first from what Jirka said, that the idea here was to put the full original xml data embedded in the <info> element, for downstream use. That's a neat trick. I was still thinking along the lines of 'I want to convert my source xml to some docbook format but hide some additional data within it.' Thanks for elaborating, David.

Jirka's suggestion is the best approach. It gives you all the flexiblity
in the world with no extra work. Here's how it might look:

                <vadim:metadata xmlns:vadim="http://somedomain-you-own/some-namespace-you-makeup">
              Ipsum lorem. Stuff readers see goes here.

DocBook's info element and its contents are already ignored by the xslts.
You can encode your data in xml as complex as it needs to be in a namespace
of your invention. Here's another way of doing it if you don't like namespace prefixes:

                <metadata xmlns="http://somedomain-you-own/some-namespace-you-makeup">
              Ipsum lorem. Stuff readers see goes here.

I would, however, like to store it in my Docbook XML - because future transformations would like to read my Docbook XML and they'd need all of the data that went into it. I'd rather not introduce a secondary file for storing the extra data - this would bring complications and fragility.
